Support Services

It’s normal for people with cancer, or any other chronic illness, to sometimes need professional as well as peer support.

There are many issues that arise on the cancer journey and it may help to join a cancer support group or receive professional counselling to clarify the issues, talk them through and help find resolution.

Cancer Support WA helps and supports people with cancer and their families to find inspiration, information and wellness. Our fully subsidised support services include cancer support groups, Cancer Care Packs, a library, outreach services, and our counselling services.

Cancer Support Groups

Cancer Support WA has offered cancer support groups for more than two decades and been a source of much needed companionship and care for many people. Cancer Support WA holds a range of support groups, including cancer wellness, and women’s group.


Individual and group counselling sessions are available with Cancer Support WA’s compassionate, qualified counsellors who specialise in counselling people with cancer and their families.
