Welcome to C’Siders
It’s likely that you’re here because you or someone you care for has been affected by cancer. It’s a worrying time and you might be feeling you need some support other than just from your medical team. That’s what we offer!
We hold regular meetings where you can meet others with similar experiences and we can all learn from each other. Our members have experienced a variety of cancer types, but the feelings you have and some of the treatments are common to all.
Our meetings often feature a speaker who can give us useful information on a variety of topics, such as diet and nutrition, exercise, complementary therapies, etc. and we can help with sign-posting you to other useful services.
We also support C’Fit, a cancer rehabilitation exercise scheme run at the Osprey Leisure Centre. Some of our members take part while others volunteer to help at the sessions.
Another form of exercise we take part in is table tennis sessions for cancer patients and carers which take place at Wyke Regis Community and Sports Association off Ryemead Lane; see our events list for dates.
Becoming a C’siders member is easy and costs nothing. All you have to do is complete and sign a form giving us permission to add you to our mailing list. Once a member you will receive a regular update of forthcoming meetings, events and outings and will be entitled to any subsidy offered by C’siders for these.
Get in touch and come along to a meeting – we’d love to meet you.
