Most of our workshops are run in liaison with existing cancer organisations and charities. This way we can add value to their organisations and they add value to ours, a win-win situation as this way we can provide better services to people affected by cancer, offering more choices to meet their needs.

The Cancer Coaching Community (CCC) is a newly founded community of professional coaches who coach people affected by cancer, to support them to move forward from their cancer experience. What’s unique about this group is that ALL coaches have direct or indirect cancer experience and have a wide knowledge and understanding about the impact of cancer.
We aspire to be the UK organisation that champions coaching for people affected by cancer. It will enable them to access trained, knowledgeable and professional coaches, who will provide dedicated support at one of the most challenging periods in people’s lives.
CCC aims are to:
- Improve self-management and the resilience of people affected by cancer
- Collate and share knowledge of the practice and benefits of cancer coaching
- Develop proposals for how cancer coaching can help healthcare professionals, employers and society to meet the growing demand for after-cancer care and reduce costs
- Raise awareness of cancer coaching amongst people affected by cancer
- Provide the focal point for research into the practice and benefits of cancer coaching
- Partner with cancer and wellbeing organisations to increase awareness
- Meet the growing demand for cancer coaching and promote & facilitate a national cancer coaching service
Working With Cancer (South of UK)
Woring With Cancer helps both employees and employers to manage cancer and work. They advise employers on how to successfully manage cancer in the workplace, and they advise individuals affected by cancer on returning to work, remaining in work or finding employment at any stage during or after cancer treatment. It’s setup as a Social Enterprise; their work with commercial organisations subsidises the work with many cancer charities.
