Contact and Support

Making contact is the first step towards understanding more about your condition. Today there are well known and tested treatment options that your consultant will discuss with you plus we offer excellent support towards handling many of the issues and thoughts that may arise at any time.

You may want clarity on treatment options and the steps to expect from others just ahead of you on the path or perhaps many years down the line and back to a very enjoyable life. Many of our members will be undergoing, or have undergone, similar treatment to yours and their experiences could help you understand and manage the way forward. Their experiences can provide valuable support and reassurance. Everyone has their own needs and we do our best to link you with people over the phone and by email or by swapping thoughts and concerns at meetings. Please note that we are a completely independent Support group with good links with professionals at the Royal Berkshire Hospital but not in any way part of the RBH.

New members are particularly welcome - Membership is FREE. Anyone can join by attending any of these meetings, or by contacting one of the people listed below. You will be met by a committee member at a table just inside the entrance. He will make you feel at home and will ask you for your name and an email address for the purpose of sending you a regular copy of the Newsletter produced by the group. (If you do not have email you could possibly use that of a close friend or family member, as email is a quick and efficient way of communicating.)

Visit the Venue pages to see details of when and where we meet each month.

FOR IMMEDIATE SUPPORT: Contact us by sending an email to, or contact one of our support volunteers directly (see below).
