Our Peer Mentoring support is provided by trained volunteers who have personal experience of a cancer diagnosis.
The role of the mentor is to support the client with the issues they may experience with their cancer diagnosis, e.g. helping to reduce anxiety and isolation, helping increase self-esteem and developing coping strategies.
The service is flexible so as a client’s needs change, the mentoring role can change too.
Who can use it?
Anyone who has had a cancer diagnosis and needs support.
What types of cancer?
The service is available for most types of cancer and for those who may be affected by hereditary cancers.
How to match you?
We will try as far as possible to match clients with a mentor with a similar diagnosis and experience.
Where is it?
Available by phone, we have mentors accessible regionally throughout NI.

I wholeheartedly believe that my mentor dramatically improved my experience of dealing with my diagnosis.
My mentor was warm and open and immediately made me feel that I had made the right decision to use the service.
I would recommend this service because the only person who really understands is someone who has been through the same experience.
