Sligo Cancer Support Centre
A diagnosis of cancer profoundly changes a personâ€™s life. Many people feel alone, isolated and afraid. Some people keep their fears to themselves in order not to cause further trauma to their families. Others have no one to share their fears with. Such an experience led to the foundation of the Centre in 1996. Initially a small group of people met once a month to support each other. In 1999 the first Centre was opened at 2a Wine Street to provide holistic therapies and counselling, in addition to support groups.
Due to the increased demand for a more comprehensive service the Centre relocated in 2009, to 44 Wine Street. This building provided much more space, easier access and a much greater range of facilities.
Sometimes it takes a lot of courage to come to the Centre for the first time. For many however, it can be a big step on the road to complete recovery. The peace, hope and encouragement you get strengthens and supports you as you journey back to full health.
Sligo Cancer Support Centre is a place of peace and hope where people with cancer and their families can access support, counselling, holistic therapies and healing workshops in a caring and tranquil environment in the North West of Ireland.
