What Do Rotherham Cancer Care Do?
Rotherham Cancer Care Centre supports people who have been affected by cancer and its treatments, whenever they might need it and whatever their needs might be. The Centre achieves this by using a person-centered approach and therapeutic expertise complementing both NHS services and the person themselves.
What Services Do Rotherham Cancer Care Offer?
We provide care that is person centered and holistic in its approach, people affected by cancer have individual needs that cannot always be fully addressed by their health care providers and social support networks. Through one-to-one assessment we give people time to talk about their fears and concerns and provide complementary therapies and/or counselling to improve quality of life.
We offer time and space in a calm and welcoming environment, a place for people to come to talk, and someone to help them deal with the way cancer has affected them and their life, without guilt or the fear of upsetting anyone.
How is Rotherham Cancer Care Different to Other Cancer Charities?
We are committed to looking beyond the diagnosis so that we can support our clients as people affected by cancer rather than cancer “patients”. They face numerous physical, psychological, social, spiritual and financial issues for the remaining years of their lives. We combine an awareness of strategies and ways to address the impacts of Cancer on the individual’s life, their families and wider social perception and understandings of the impact it has.
Not only do we support the person with the Cancer diagnosis, but as carers often get a raw deal when it comes to support, we are keen to offer our services to their main carer as well. We believe that with care and support, people can cope with the reality of a cancer diagnosis helping them to feel more in control and confident with what the future holds.
The care and support offered at the Centre is not available elsewhere in Rotherham and to access the same quality of care, people would have to travel to Sheffield, approximately 10 miles away at a time when life is already extremely difficult. Although we are based in Rotherham, we also welcome people from outside the area who would benefit from our services when capacity allows.
How Do People Find Out About Rotherham Cancer Care?
Many people find out about our services from healthcare professionals within the local NHS and local GPs and we are recognised for the benefits gained especially the time our staff can spend with clients each week. We also have good connections with national organisations like Citizens Advice and MacMillan and we find this helps us to also signpost clients to other services they can offer. We continue to improve awareness of our services and the benefits they provide through events, publicity and good inter-professional communications.

We are committed to offering a free service and rely on our dedicated team of fundraisers, volunteers and Charitable Trusts to help raise the funds we need to deliver our unique care and support.
