A warm welcome to The Living Tree
We are a self-help support group for people who have experienced cancer and for their families/carers. Our group is based in Bridport and is open to any cancer patients from West Dorset, East Devon and South Somerset. We’re all at different stages of cancer – some recently diagnosed, others undergoing treatment, some in remission, others post-cancer.
The sudden loss of support – and even routine – after treatment has finished can lead to depression, loneliness and anxiety. We find that companionship, creative activities and relaxing therapies can really help.
UPDATE COVID-19, APRIL 2020:
As of 23 March, all non-essential businesses were required to close to the public and the UK government issued emergency legislation requiring individuals to stay at home and social distance. Due to this The Living Tree will not be hosting any in-person events for the foreseeable future. Social distancing can cause feelings of isolation so it is important we keep in touch with each other by whatever means we can. We will be sending our fortnightly newsletter with information on local support services as well as online and virtual workshops for Living Tree members. We are also available for support via email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07341 916976.
