Our team provides a range of professional supports to help people cope with the challenges that cancer can bring in their lives.

Our aim is to reduce the distressing impact cancer can have. We offer support in understanding the landscape of cancer as well as constructive, practical and emotional support.

We will work with you in deciding what type of support or programmes would be best for you.  All of our services are available free of charge.

You can drop in or make an appointment to chat in confidence with one of our trained volunteers in a relaxed atmosphere, away from the clinical setting.

Cork ARC has a homely atmosphere where you can sit in a peaceful setting. Our trained volunteer listeners are available to listen to you over a cup of tea. 

Our complementary therapies are designed to help you both manage and alleviate the stresses associated with a cancer diagnosis.
