Support groups are usually made up of volunteers and patients who have personal experience of cancer. Groups’ functions vary but they will usually have a telephone helpline, hold meetings or produce relevant information. Some may offer a visiting service or practical help. The main aim of a support group is to offer understanding and appropriate support based on personal knowledge and experience.
