Welcome to Cork ARC Cancer Support House. Simply call to the door or telephone without an appointment for support, free of charge.

The minute I walked through the door I knew I had done the right thing I felt myself relax.
— Visitor to Cork ARC

Our friendly and professional nurse and volunteer team welcome you to our service and want you to feel homely and relaxed when you visit our centre in contrast to the atmosphere of clinics and hospitals.

We will meet you when you drop-in and support you to explore the challenges cancer has brought to you. We will listen to you in confidence and work with you, finding how best we can support you.

Our aim is to provide you with the best advice, practical and emotional support that will help make a difference to you and your family at this time.
