Breast Cancer Support Northland Trust

Breast Cancer Support Northland Trust

We offer practical and emotional support to anyone living in Northland who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Northland

We are a local independent charitable trust formed by breast cancer survivors offering practical and emotional support to people diagnosed with breast cancer living in the Northland region.

We provide:

▪️Specially trained volunteers who have themselves recovered from breast cancer.

▪️
An opportunity to speak with others who have been in a similar position.

▪️Practical and emotional support, encouragement, and a shoulder to cry on.

▪️Information on activities and services available from ourselves and others in our Northland community in the hope that we empower New Zealanders with breast cancer to make informed choices about their treatment and care.

More about us

We offer specially trained local volunteers who have themselves been diagnosed with breast cancer. Funding helps us to provide a regularly updated Facebook page, website, and newsletter. We have fortnightly coffee/social groups to help women connect, share and feel encouraged no matter where they might be on their breast cancer journey.

Our service aims to provide resources, information and support to women diagnosed with breast cancer. We want to offer this free-of-charge to everyone who is diagnosed with breast cancer in Northland each year.  We need money to train our volunteers, provide financial help to those diagnosed, we have a meal delivery service, we host a mid-winter group meal and run an annual weekend retreat.

A breast cancer diagnosis can be an overwhelming and a life changing event. The Trust has been providing support for Northland women for over 15 years and have built strong relationships with other breast cancer services in Northland as well as local businesses. We currently receive consented referrals direct from Mauri Ora Breast Clinic, but women are welcome to self-refer to our services.
