Who We Are

Prostate Cancer Support is a charity first established 20 years ago. It is a patient-led charity, run exclusively by volunteers for prostate cancer patients and their families. Different than many other charities, we operate with a minimum rent, small office and once part time employee who, very kindly, works 4 hours per week on a very low wage. Everything else we do is supported by volunteers. We intend to maintain this way of operating, focussing any expenditure on benefitting prostate cancer patients and their families.

There are four main elements to what we do

Support Groups

If you’ve just been diagnosed with prostate cancer, there can be nothing better than talking to people who have ‘been there’.  Every group consists of friendly men and women who have been affected by Prostate Cancer and who will welcome you and share their experiences.  If you would like further information, or just want to talk to us, please call us on our helpline number. You'll find it at the top of the page and just below this paragraph. The Helpline number is usually answered by a Prostate Cancer Patient. Alternatively find a local group by entering your postcode below or use our interactive map and give them a call.

Just diagnosed? anxious? want information? want to talk to someone who’s ‘been there'

Our helpline: 0800 774 7560

Prostate Cancer Awareness

We work hard to raise the awareness of Prostate Cancer. We recognise that to save lives, both men and their families need to know more about this type of cancer, how to detect it and how it is treated. We do this in three main ways:

Prostate Cancer Testing

As 80% of men with early prostate cancer have no symptoms, prostate cancer testing (PSA testing – a simple blood test) is important.  If you are over 50 you should be able to have this test at your GP surgery but as this is not always possible, we work closely with The Graham Fulford Charitable Trust.  Tap on their logo at the bottom of the pages and you will see the list of events they have planned.  It’s easy to sign up but if you have any problems, please give them a call they are fantastically helpful. If you want to arrange specific testing for your organisation, again, give them a call.
