Online Support

Online community

Our online community provides a confidential and safe space for you to share your experiences, offer advice and pass on any tips for others! We understand that there are questions you may want to ask that maybe difficult or emotional, and our friendly online community is the place to start.

One to one support consultation

Our one to one sessions are an opportunity to talk to one of our trained Sophie’s Stars volunteers.

At Sophie’s Stars we understand that your emotions can be forgotten about when supporting the people you love through cancer. They can be forgotten by you, and by others around you. We also understand that you need to acknowledge and address your emotions to help you continue providing the support your loved ones need. Our Sophie’s Stars volunteers are here to listen, and provide you with practical and emotional support.

Our one to one support consultations are free of charge, confidential and take place over the telephone or zoom. Please be advised that our volunteers are not trained counsellors, they all have experience in supporting a loved one through cancer.

Sophie’s Stars support groups

Our support groups offer a perfect opportunity to meet other people who are in a similar position to you, and just get it!

At Sophie’s Stars we understand that a cancer diagnosis in someone you love presents a frightening situation where you may feel helpless in helping them. We want to assist you in navigating your way through this experience and enable you to support someone with strength, love and compassion. We will all be fearful of saying or doing the wrong thing and talking with others will help you provide the best support to your loved one.

Our support groups take place once a month and provide a safe space for people to come together and share their experiences. The groups are facilitated by trained Sophie’s Stars volunteers. Please note that no medical advice will be provided during these group sessions, Sophie’s Stars volunteers all have experience of supporting a loved one through cancer. For now groups will take place online via zoom, but in time we hope to be able to meet in person!
