Giving Glasgow Donation

Cancer Support Scotland have been supporting those affected by cancer for over 40 years. Based in Glasgow within the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre Campus, they offer wellbeing services – such as counselling, ‘Here for You’ wellbeing calls, and stress management workshops – to those affected by cancer.

Following a cancer diagnosis, people often experience feelings of distress, anxiety, isolation and may even experience suicidal thoughts. Early intervention to avoid preventable mental health crises is important at this time.

A survey conducted by Cancer Support Scotland found that after just 6 hours of one-to-one sessions their service users reported: a 58% reduction in feelings of stress and anxiety and a 55% reduction in feelings of loneliness and isolation.

The charity received a £1,000 donation from Giving Glasgow.
