Support Groups/Networks

COVID-19 UPDATE: In this rapidly evolving COVID-19 environment it is regrettable but entirely expected that our ability to hold face-to-face Support Group Meetings will be impacted. Our dedicated Support Coordinators (below) remain at the end of the phone or email, and while some meetings may be cancelled others will be held via ZOOM.  Please keep an eye on the Support Meeting Calendar for updates. If you have any questions regarding treatment please contact your medical team – they are in the best position to help you.

An extensive national network of volunteers provides holistic support and resources to aid men, their partners, family and whanau navigate the prostate cancer journey. Contact your local Support Group Coordinator(s) listed on this page or our Information Line 0800 477 678.
