About us What we do What we do Your help through the toughest times Breast Cancer Haven is the charity that supports women through their breast cancer treatment. When breast cancer tries to rob a woman of her individuality, her confidence or her strength, we provide the tailored package of emotional, physical and practical support that helps her hold on to them. We support women and their families via a network of six welcoming centres around the UK and through an expanding network of other services. We're there to provide women with breast cancer the support that treatment alone can't. How we do it We offer advice on practical things like money and work, help combatting stress, exhaustion and nausea, advice on healthy eating and exercise. And above all, there will always be someone to talk to about your deepest fears. Our trained professional nurses, therapists, counsellors and advisers listen to your individual concerns and give you all the practical, emotional and physical support you need in a tailor-made package. Our support is free of charge and available in our beautiful Breast Cancer Haven centres – which are as far away from a hospital environment as you can imagine.Each visitor to Breast Cancer Haven can expect to receive up to ten free hours' of supportive therapy time. In addition, you will also receive two hours' of nurse specialist time at the beginning and end of your tailored programme. Who can we help? Our free support is available to women and men who have been affected by breast cancer. This includes people who carry the BRCA 1 and 2 genes. We also offer four hours' of free counselling to family members and close friends of people that have been diagnosed with breast cancer. There is no need for a doctor’s referral and you can attend our centres at any point of your breast cancer journey, whether that is at diagnosis, during treatment or in recovery. So just contact us, make an appointment and we will take it from there.If you can't get to one of our Breast Cancer Haven centres help is also available over the telephone, through our self-help films on this website or via our Haven at Home DVD which you can order free of charge from our shop.
