We are a registered charity helping to support people affected by all cancers and other chronic illnesses.
The current TWCSC premises at Stonydelph Arch, Craven, were opened in June 2014 to provide a welcoming, friendly place for anyone needing support or information about living with, or after a diagnosis of cancer or any other chronic illness.
A dedicated team of volunteers, led by the Centre Manager, work hard to help bridge between clinical and home environments.
There was a natural progression to supporting clients with other illnesses and promoting wellbeing, as a form of prevention and enhancing life’s experience.
Our Centre’s doors are open to everyone, whether it be yourself, a friend or a relative that is affected by illness.
Come and sit in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and let us offer you practical advice, emotional support or just a listening ear.
Living with chronic illness can feel like a very lonely time. Nobody should have to feel this and so this is the very reason our charity exists.
We offer alternative therapies, healthy eating advice, we have wig fitting facilities and bra fitting services.
We also hold specific support groups throughout the month and we always offer a warm smile and a hot drink with our very willing volunteers.
We have been awarded with the ‘Community Group of the Year’ award at the Tamworth Business & Community Awards in November 2016. Our Centre Manager Paula Da-Silva was also awarded with the highly commended runner up award in the category of ‘Citizen of the Year’.
In February 2017 we were awarded with the award for ‘Community Group of the Year’ at the Spirit of Tamworth Awards.
