Wellbeing & Support Groups

A network of support 

Our support groups and education programmes help people affected by cancer. We offer a variety of workshops and events for people with cancer, their family/whanau, carers and friends. Support groups mean people can get together to share their individual experiences and gain support from others.

Support groups and education programmes are free and are designed to help participants have a better understanding of cancer and feel more in control of their cancer experience - from diagnosis, through treatment to recovery and beyond.  People come together in a safe and supported environment, gaining knowledge, insight and support from others. Many different groups, programmes, events and workshops are offered locally so you can choose one that is best for you. 

If you are interested in any of these groups and would like more information, please contact us at groups@cancercwc.org.nz or phone 03 379 5835
