Family, Friends and Carers’ Cuppa

We know that supporting a loved one with pancreatic cancer can be an isolating experience. You may feel pressure to put on a brave face for your loved one, or struggle to know what to say to people when they ask how you’re doing. It’s important that you get the support you need, and that’s why we run our online Family, Friends and Carers’ Cuppas.

  • Each session is an hour long and held on Zoom
  • Meet and get support from others in a similar situation

Who is this session for?


This session is for anybody who has a loved one with pancreatic cancer.

To enable everybody to share freely, this session isn’t suitable for people who are living with pancreatic cancer themselves.

What can I expect from the session?


Family, Friends and Carers’ Cuppa is very informal and there is no set agenda. It’s a chance to share whatever’s on your mind, and chat with other people who are supporting a loved one with a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.

Upcoming dates:

Tuesday 25th May, 2pm – 3pm, hosted by specialist nurse Rachel Richardson

Give it a try, it's so reassuring to speak to people who have similar experiences. There is no pressure to contribute, even if you just want to listen or observe you will gain new knowledge and feel part of a community.
