Support group

I'm looking for a support group

There are hundreds of prostate cancer support groups in the UK. We have details of many of them and you can search our online database to find a group local to you.

If you can't find a support group within easy distance of where you are, you might want to consider starting one yourself.

Why are support groups important?

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives.  It’s vital every single person affected by prostate cancer gets the support they need, where they need it. So we believe that every man should have access to a good quality prostate cancer support group.

Support groups operate in local communities, and can be a fantastic source of information and informal support for men and their families. Meeting and hearing from others affected by the disease can not only enable you to share your feelings but also understand the way you feel, and improve your wellbeing.

Many support groups are also members of Tackle, an umbrella organisation representing prostate cancer support groups. We are also working with Tackle on joint initiatives.

We also run a monthly group chat from men who are on active surveillance and want to share experiences and ask questions to other men on the same treatment. The group chat happens on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 7-8pm.
