Palliative Care Programme

Our Palliative Care Programme can support you from the point of diagnosis and help you and your family navigate into the future, for however long you need us.

How does the programme work?

Our support team can work with you to ensure you receive the right support, whether that’s attending a support group, or having 1:1 sessions or counselling. The programme is tailored to the individual, so we’ll suggest ways we can support you that works for you.

How our palliative care programme can help

We can support you in a variety of ways including…

Initial 1:1 chat

A discussion on how we can best support you going forward.

Practical information

We’ll talk you through the practicalities of dealing with a palliative diagnosis and guide you through the support and care that’s available.

Support tools

We’ll offer techniques that can help you process your situation, including acceptance and moving on.


We can offer you and your family counselling sessions if you need extra support.

1:1 support

We provide 1:1 support if you’re not comfortable in a group session.

Group support

A Big C facilitator will help you to understand your circumstances, offering a safe environment to express your emotions.

“It’s so reassuring to know that others are going through the same thing as you. It’s made such a difference understanding what ‘palliative’ really means, and knowing the team are there for me, with whatever support is needed.”
