SWELL (Supported We Live Life)

From the SWELL website:

Founded and managed on a voluntary basis by cancer patients, SWELL (Supported We Live Life) is built on the foundation of recognising and addressing feelings of loneliness, helplessness and anxiety which are synonymous with a cancer diagnosis.
We believe these feelings can best be countered through delivering easily accessible ‘Social Medicine’.

The feeling that comes from knowing you are surrounded by an abundance of people who are ‘all in this together’ is both calming and empowering.

SWELL strive to ensure that cancer patients, their family, friends and carers do not feel alone and that sadness, feelings of loneliness and anxiety are addressed in a safe, friendly and confidential environment.

We acknowledge that the effects of cancer can mean different things to different people and that individuals are impacted in different ways and the diversity of our programmes reflect this.
