Get support

Every woman's experience of cancer is different, but talking to another woman who has had cancer can help. Counterpart connects, supports and informs women with breast or a gynaecological cancer to live well.

Peer support

Our highly trained and professional Peer Support Volunteers give you emotional support, understanding, hope and comfort. Counterpart means you are not alone.

Our services are confidential and provided at no cost to the service user. We can offer phone or in person support or help you find reliable, evidenced-based information that is tailored for your needs and individual circumstance.

Please note that the Queen Victoria Women's Centre is undergoing renovations in 2019. If you are unable to use the stairs see our instructions on accessing the building.

We also provide specialised information and support for women living with advanced/metastatic cancer.
