A Cancer Council Information Service is provided within treatment centres across NSW. Offering an opportunity for cancer patients, carers, their friends and family to be provided with information on cancer and a range of support services.
What is involved?
- Access to evidence based information for anyone affected by cancer.
- Improving awareness and access to support services, including CCNSW Services.
- Providing social support.
Cancer Council NSW has a range of publications that are available at our Information Service locations, with over 50 resources available.
Talk to a trained Cancer Council volunteer, who can help you find the resources or services you need. While not providing counselling or medical advice, the volunteers are happy to discuss your situation and guide you to relevant information and services.
