Peer Support Group for People Impacted by Cancer

Image for the peer support group

This group was established in April 2018 and is open to anybody at the University.

It will aim to support anyone who has been impacted by cancer in any way - as a sufferer, as a carer, or simply as a friend.  It will bring together people in a safe and supportive environment to discuss and share experiences as well as signposting people to internal and external support which is available.

If you wish to be added to the confidential LISTSERV, then please contact equalityanddiversity@manchester.ac.uk
