This place is full of love and care. Laughter never in short supply.
The Centre has given me a completely new life in many ways
Friendship and compassion, encouragement and support when you need it most.
An Update 15 / 8 / 2020
I just wanted to keep you all up to date with what we are doing at the Centre.
As you will have seen from the front pop up, we will be opening the doors at the Centre on the 1st September – unless regulation stops us !
We will be offering 1:1 therapy sessions on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to start off with, but are hopeful that, should income from fundraising allow, we will be able to increase the numbers of days open in the future.
If you would like to book an appointment then please call the Centre on 0121 378 6295 and we will be able to let you know when the next available appointment is. There will be a limited number of therapies and appointments available each day so you may need to be patient if you wish to see a specific therapist. It will also be very important that you let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend, as we expect there will be a waiting list for each therapist.
Initially there will be no groups running from the building, but we are hoping to offer some at alternative premises which have larger capacity rooms; as well as doing some live sessions over the CSC Helpyourself You Tube channel. This will probably be from October / November.
We are working really hard to ensure that both your and our safety is top of our agenda. There will be set procedures in place that we will adhere to and would ask that you do too. Here is a link to the procedures we have set in place and a short video showing what to expect when you come to the Centre, plus what we ask of you too !
We hope to see you soon

Thank you …. Client feedback over the past month …..
Having you there whilst all this madness has been happening has been amazing. I don’t think I would have coped with out you to talk to.
I don’t think you realise what a difference you have made to me over the past few months. Thank you so much.
Kindness and understanding …..
Thank you for being there for my daughter, she is in a much better place now and looks forward to her sessions each week. Thank you from a now less anxious mom !
Deirdre was amazing today, understanding in every way thankyou so much
You guys have been amazing. When my treatment stopped I thought that was the end for me. You have helped me so much. Thank you
My sessions with Roy have been amazing, helpful. I would go as far as to say life saving for myself and my family !
Whatever support you need, you choose.
We believe that the impact of cancer is not just physical, and that recovery is assisted by attending to the needs of the whole person, mind, body, spirit and emotions.
Our aim is to provide you with techniques that help you to support yourself on the road towards recovery.
Accessing therapies, learning Self-Help techniques, taking part in Groups and Talks can all help lessen some of the distressing symptoms which may occur as possible side effects of surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Side effects such as fatigue, pain, nausea, sleeplessness, anxiety or panic attacks.
Our support will work alongside conventional medical interventions.

Being a volunteer
What a difference a day makes. This was the day I phoned the C.S.C. for help and support. It completely changed my life from a life of despair to a life of hope and fulfilment.
Thank you to everyone connected to the C.S.C. for their help and support.
The centre is a place to relax and forget the troubles of the world. Thanks to the therapists that taught me to relax and “switch off”.
Just having a chat and cup of tea at the centre helps to restore some peace of mind.
Friends…having a chat, sharing good times and difficult ones. Laughter and someone to listen when you need to talk. That’s what the centre is to me.
I feel like someone has put a blanket around my shoulders when I walk through the doors.
As a carer of someone who has terminal cancer I feel so relaxed coming to the centre and being with others in similar situations. Reading, relaxing and just chilling out.
Always lovely friendly and kind people at the centre. Always someone to talk and laugh with.
My second home. Love it here.
Life after cancer begins here at the Sutton Cancer centre.
Support, knowledge/informed choice, drop in classes, positivity. Putting me in the driving seat-being a life line. I am far happier.
The whole experience of the centre has helped me greatly. The treatments have relieved my symptoms which were sometimes debilitating. I feel happy content and whole again! A very different person to that of 12 months ago.
Very friendly, relaxing environment. Not a place I thought I would be visiting, but pleased it was recommended to me. Somewhere I can be myself.
The Centre is a place I can talk openly to someone without worrying about upsetting my family. There is always someone to listen and help.
The Centre gives me lots of support, laughter and friendships
The help, love and support at the Centre has brought me back to being me
Without the Centres’ close support I really don’t think my mom would be here today. Thank you.
I really think everybody touched by cancer can find something to help them at the Centre, and in an atmosphere that is always cheerful and friendly.
I could never repay the Centre for what they have done. Cancer is a very lonely disease. If people could come here they would not be so lonely.
Cancer does affect the whole family and I am sure if it wasn’t for the genuine, constant support we received at the Centre, I would not be able to continue enjoying my family life today. I am so grateful for their help at a time when our lives were at rock bottom.
