Cancer Support Scotland is here to provide emotional and practical support on a one-to-one basis and through community-based groups to anyone affected by cancer, including family, friends and carers.
Founded by Sir Kenneth Calman in 1980, we are a Scottish Charity here to support people affected by cancer. The charity's main centre is the Calman Cancer Support Centre based within the grounds of Gartnavel Hospital, Glasgow and has a number of support groups covering Scotland.
Cancer Support Scotland, formerly known as Tak Tent, offers one-to-one counselling and complementary therapies to people affected by cancer including family and friends, before, during and after treatment. We also bring people together in community support groups to discuss their feelings and anxieties when faced with a cancer diagnosis
We offer all of our services our free of charge and rely on donations and legacies from the public to allow us to continue to support the people who need us most.
