Peer support for advanced/metastatic cancer

staff and volunteers having tea in the resource centre


Our Peer Support Volunteers have all experienced a gynaecological or breast cancer and some volunteers are living with advanced/metastatic disease.

All of our volunteers will listen and give you time and space to talk through how you are feeling. Many women find this helps them to look after their wellbeing, maintain hope and manage the uncertainty of living with an advanced/metastatic cancer diagnosis.

Pam's story Our volunteer Pam shares her thoughts on the value of peer support for women living with metastatic cancer.

Counterpart Peer Support Volunteers can also help you to find reliable information or direct you to services that provide practical help, medical advice or support.
