Support meetings

COVID-19 Update: In this rapidly evolving COVID-19 environment it is regrettable but entirely expected that our ability to deliver face-to-face Support Group Meetings will be impacted in response to alert level restrictions. Some may be cancelled, others move online to ZOOM. Please contact your local Support Coordinator directly for details or call us on 0800 477 678. If you or your whanau are unsure about cancer treatment during alert levels, rest assured they will continue. Visit Te Aho O Te Kahu Cancer Control Agency  for more information, or contact your medical team – they are in the best position to help you. Please stay safe and follow the Ministry of Health Guidelines

We will continue working together  to continue providing support, without compromise. Our Support Group Coordinators remain at the end of the phone or email, please feel free to make contact with them. Alternatively, call us on 0800 477 678 or hop into our Online Forum. As circumstances change we will update meeting details here, so please keep checking in.
