What we do

Woman receiving peer support


Counterpart connects, supports and informs women living with breast or a gynaecological cancer to live well. How do we do that?

We offer peer support

Our trained and experienced Peer Support Volunteers understand what it is like to be a woman who has cancer, as they have had a cancer diagnosis themselves.

Our sessions include creative, wellness and information sessions.

  • Women living with advanced/metastatic cancer can also join our Making Connections sessions.
