Welcome

Welcome to the Fourth Edition of the Directory of Cancer Support Services

Affiliated to the Irish Cancer Society.

More people are getting cancer in Ireland. It is estimated that one in three of

us will be diagnosed with the disease during our lifetime. Cancer is however increasingly viewed as a condition from which people survive.

Evidence shows that when people experiencing cancer receive good social and psychological support, their quality of life improves. It is well recognised that the voluntary sector in Ireland has been the mainstay in the provision of supportive care for cancer patients in the community. Through this support, patients have been empowered to deal with the emotional and practical challenges of the disease.

The Irish Cancer Society has committed to assisting community-based cancer support services to build their capacity so that no matter where in Ireland one lives, they receive the highest possible standard of care in their community.

The purpose of this directory is to provide information on the availability of cancer support services in Ireland and to promote their use. The directory includes information on all support groups, centres and services affiliated to the Irish Cancer Society. As new groups develop the Irish Cancer Society will endeavour to provide support and information as well as inclusion in the Directory. For all the latest updates and downloads please see www.cancer.ie/supportservices.

We hope you find this Directory useful and informative and we would like to take this opportunity to reiterate our commitment to supporting the on-going development of all service providers.

The vision of the Society is toward a future without cancer. We are confident that this directory is a key component in meeting the information needs of patients, families, health care professionals, and all those working in cancer support services.

A few words about affiliation What is affiliation?

Affiliation is where a group or cancer support service becomes part of a network (it can be local, regional or national). This can be a loose arrangement or it may involve a more formal affiliation process where the cancer support service has to meet certain criteria in order to become an affiliate.

Irish Cancer Society Affiliation Programme The goal of the Irish Cancer Society affiliation programme is to increase access to and utilisation of cancer support services in Ireland using a proven model of practice and a network of support services. In consultation with the membership, the Irish CancerSociety has developed a more structured approach to its provision of training, technical supports and grants. Training is offered on a regional basis and affiliates are invited to apply for specific grants to carry out measurable activities.

The Irish Cancer Society will continue to provide support to new cancer support services during their first two years of development regardless of whether they affiliate or not.

Participation in the affiliation is completely voluntary. If you would like to learn more about affiliation to the Irish Cancer Society or apply to become an affiliate, please contact us on 01 231 0500 or email support@irishcancer.ie
