We are here for your cancer support needs 

Hearing the word ‘cancer’ is hard. 

It can be the start of a very emotional time. Whether you have just been diagnosed or are starting treatment, you may struggle to deal with the overwhelming feelings attached to cancer; fear, guilt, frustration, anxiety. The list goes on.

Our mission is simple; to improve the quality of your life by helping you cope with and come to terms with the changes happening to you and around you. 

Here at The Nightingale we provide a range of emotional, physical and practical support services completely free of charge, which are provided by a wonderful team of qualified professionals.

Don’t struggle with cancer alone. We’re here to help you through all the changes happening to you and in your life.

How The Nightingale Came To Be

You might know what The Nightingale does but you might not know how the charity came to be.

The original hope for The Nightingale was to provide in-patient hospice services with an idea to end up with a bedded hospice within 10-12 years. However, during the late 90s and early 00s, cancer treatment was going through a sea of change. That’s when the charity’s priorities shifted.

22 years later we’re still here helping people in our community affected by the devastating impact of cancer.
