Cancer Support Services

Family  at home

Family Support NI are working with the Department of Health and Cancer Charities Coalition to use the FSNI website platform to host information about services available for people living with cancer, their families, and carers.

A cancer diagnosis is life altering regardless of age or circumstance.

It impacts all members of the family and can often place huge strain on individual's physical and emotional wellbeing, as well as practical and logistical challenges. In Northern Ireland, we have a range of support available for all those impacted by cancer and for all family members.

You may need some information about your cancer or perhaps you have a practical question, for example, about claiming benefits or making decisions about your treatment options.

You might also want to find out about opportunities to meet people who know what you’re going through and can offer you support.

This site is designed to help you navigate that support and find a service that you and/or your family may require
