What we do

Wessex Cancer Trust believe that there should be help and support available to everyone living with cancer, when and where they need it.

Due to the Coronavirus we are evolving our support services to ensure that we have resources available that are easy to access from home as our support centres are currently closed. We're continually updating our online resources, which include videos and helpful advice, streaming of classes and meditation and telephone counselling.

This uncertain time is particularly hard if you have cancer, with worries about treatment or risk of infection. Now, our services are needed more than ever. We know cancer doesn't stop so we're working hard to be here for everyone who needs us but we can't do it alone. We need you to join us, raise funds and Walk for Hope Your Way this September!

Irwin Mitchell are proud to be able to sponsor and support Wessex Cancer’s Walk for Hope for a third year. It has been inspiring to see Wessex Cancer adapt this event, despite the challenging pandemic situation, to ensure that it can go ahead and truly emphasises the wonderful ability of this charity to triumph despite adversity and provide for its community of users. We wish all the walkers the best of luck, and will be virtually walking alongside you all.
