44 Wine Street, Sligo, County Sligo

Sligo Cancer Support Centre

A diagnosis of cancer profoundly changes a person’s life. Many people feel alone, isolated and afraid. Some people keep their fears to themselves in order not to cause further trauma to their families. Others have no one to share their fears with. Such an experience led to the foundation of the Centre in 1996. Initially a small group of people met once a month to support each other. In 1999 the first Centre was opened at 2a Wine Street to provide holistic therapies and counselling, in addition to support groups.

Due to the increased demand for a more comprehensive service the Centre relocated in 2009, to 44 Wine Street. This building provided much more space, easier access and a much greater range of facilities.

Sometimes it takes a lot of courage to come to the Centre for the first time. For many however, it can be a big step on the road to complete recovery. The peace, hope and encouragement you get strengthens and supports you as you journey back to full health.

Sligo Cancer Support Centre is a place of peace and hope where people with cancer and their families can access support, counselling, holistic therapies and healing workshops in a caring and tranquil environment in the North West of Ireland.

A centre for people living with cancer and their families. Here you will find a home from home; a place where you will find peace and hope and the support you need for your journey to recovery.

where your money goes

Every euro that we receive here at Sligo Cancer Support Centre is used to provide different therapies, various support groups and workshops, counselling psychology and art therapy for those on their cancer journey; for family members who are struggling to cope with a diagnosis and for those who are bereaved through cancer.

Your kind support allows us to provide new programmes which otherwise would have been impossible. We can never thank you enough for your part in helping us to provide all our healing programmes.
