We Hear You – Cancer Counselling
We Hear You works across Bath and North East Somerset, Somerset and Wiltshire providing emotional support to patients, families, friends and carers who have been affected by cancer or any other life threatening condition.
At We Hear you we understand that the emotional impact can be just as hard to manage as physical symptoms, and that the impact extends to everyone connected to the person diagnosed. People who use our service often report feeling numb, isolated and terrified and are struggling to cope. We provide a safe space where people can say the unsayable and ask the unanswerable. When you ask WHY… we hear you.
If you are affected or have been bereaved by cancer or another life threatening condition and would like to know more about our counselling, please see our 'Get Support' pages.
Please note that due to an unprecedentedly high demand for our services, waiting times are currently around 16 weeks
How You Can Help Us
It's important to us that our service is free to access. It costs more than £5,000 a week and we don't receive any central government funding. Can you help? There are lots of ways to get involved, from hosting an event, sharing your time and skills as a volunteer, taking on a physical or a personal challenge or making a one-off or regular donation.
Donating your time and skills to WHY is of huge benefit to us, and to you too: make new friends, be part of something important and learn some new skills, for as little or as much time as you'd like to offer. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator Lottie to find out more.
- Make a Donation
The impact of a life threatening diagnosis is far reaching and for many people that includes financial challenges. We can only continue to provide a lifeline to those who need it because of the generous support of people like you. Making a donation, however big or small, is a great way of supporting our vital work.
