Cancer can throw you and your family into turmoil and uncertainty.

At Cork ARC, we welcome you to our service and want you to feel homely and relaxed when you visit our centres in Cork city, Bantry and Youghal in contrast to the atmosphere of clinics and hospitals.

We know it can be hard for some to ring that bell, once you knock on the door you will be met by one of our team. Calling to Cork ARC is just like calling into any home, the drop in area is like a large sitting room -  it's designed to make you feel safe and at ease. We use the friendly and welcoming spaces at the NICHE Community Health Project on Harbour View Road for our Friday morning drop in support service on the north side of Cork city and it's a warm and inviting space for all visitors.

The minute I walked through the door I knew I had done the right thing I felt myself relax.
