Story

The next few months is looking particularly tough and in order for us to provide our current average of 200 appointments per month over the next 3 months, we need your help.

Did you know? Cancer Support Scotland is the ONLY Scottish charity to offer free counselling for ANYONE affected by any cancer type, including family and carers nationally.

Did you know? As a charity, we receive no NHS or regular Government funding. This means that we rely solely on the generosity of people like you to fund the vital services we offer to people affected by cancer in Scotland.

By giving £40, you could fund a 1-hour counselling session for a person affected by cancer. By giving £240, you could fund an entire 6 session block of counselling for a person affected by cancer in Scotland.

The difference your money could make –

£40 – “The person I initially spoke to helped me immediately by recognising my distress. The counsellor I was referred to was understanding, friendly but professional. I felt very comfortable speaking to her and felt so much better even after one session."

£240 - "After my husband’s death the support I had from the counsellor saved my life. I don’t know if or how I would have got through those days and weeks without her. At the worst and loneliest time of my life she was there for me and I’ll be grateful for that forever."

Help us support those in need, when they need us the most.
