Prostate Cancer UK

We want a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer.

To have the biggest possible impact for men with prostate cancer, those not yet diagnosed and future generations, we need to tackle these priorities.

  • Get men diagnosed earlier
  • Get men diagnosed more accurately
  • Get better treatments
  • Get better support

Macmillan Cancer Support

At Macmillan, we understand the many ways in which a cancer diagnosis can affect your life.

From the moment you're diagnosed, through your treatment and beyond, we're right there with you, offering emotional, physical and financial support.

We are millions of people affected by cancer, supporters, professionals, volunteers, and campaigners. We all have one thing in common – our care and support for people living with cancer.

  • Encourage and assist the formation and development of patient-led support groups throughout the UK
  • Raise awareness of prostate cancer in the general population
  • Encourage improvement of health services and conduct campaigns to improve the wellbeing of those affected by prostate cancer

LGBT Walnut

LGBT Prostate Cancer Support in London, 

LGBT Walnut is an independent support group for any LGBT person affected by prostate cancer. The group started as part of the METRO Walnut project at METRO Charity. METRO still employs the Prostate Cancer Peer Support Group Coordinator, Simon Faulkner, and provides meeting space at their Vauxhall site. 

LGBT Walnut mainly covers the Greater London area and parts of South-East England but we welcome you wherever you are based. There are also other Walnut groups in Dorset and Eastbourne, although we are independent of one another.

Marie Curie

Helper Service based in Bradford

Our Helper Service is a befriending service offering face to face visits giving companionship, emotional support, practical help and respite support.  We have a team of volunteers, both male and female, with ages that range from 18 to 80 and we have speakers of Urdu, Hindu. Punjabi and Portuguese.  These volunteers are full trained and DBS checked and give weekly 3 hour visits offering everything from a chat and a cup of tea with someone to visiting the theatre.  Matches with volunteers are made carefully with a volunteer in their locality and with similar interests and hobbies.  

Referrals can be easily made by either emailing me on frances.glover@mariecurie.org.uk or telephone 07747 631097.  They do not need a clinical referral, we do take self referrals or you may wish to refer someone yourself.
