The Cancer Care Map for anyone living with cancer or caring for those who have cancer.

The Cancer Care Map  is an online directory that helps people find cancer care and support services in their local area. People with cancer, their friends and family can either search for a service or can browse the types of services available, and this will flag up everything from support services embedded within the NHS, to smaller local charities and community organisations, offering care and support to those affected by cancer during and beyond treatment.

The Cancer Care Map has been set up by the Richard Dimbleby Cancer Fund - providers of cancer care and support since 1966, primarily with the Dimbleby Cancer Care centre at Guy’s and St Thomas’. Since August 2019 they have been fully focused on growing and developing the Cancer Care Map into a really helpful resource for people wherever they live in the UK. Please note that all entries are checked verified and kept up-to-date.
