Candlelighters in Your Community is back!

Candlelighters are coming to your community and bringing our much-loved support services closer to your home.

Not only do Candlelighters recognise that living with a childhood cancer diagnosis can be an isolating & anxious time, but we also know that sometimes chatting to someone who ‘gets it’ can make a big difference to our wellbeing. And with Yorkshire being a beautiful & big county – we know that accessing our family support centre in Leeds, The Square, isn’t always possible for the families we support.

Candlelighters in your Community looks to reduce the isolation felt by families, increase peer support in your local area and remove distance as a barrier for families accessing Candlelighters support.

Over the next few months, you will see a variety of Community Days running in areas across Yorkshire, these days will include:

• Walks & Talks ?
• Coffee Mornings ??
• Wellbeing Days ????????

During these Community Days you will be able to meet your Community Support Worker who can help you with:

• Information about Candlelighters Talking Therapies & other local support services.
• Information about accessing Candlelighters Support Groups & Events – available for Mums, Dads, Siblings, Patients and Grandparents.
• Any fundraising queries you may have.
• Or if you just want to drop by for a lovely catch up then that is FAB too.

This is a great way to meet other families in your local area and find out more about how Candlelighters can support you in your community.

Candlelighters support anyone affected by childhood cancer; whether you’re a patient, past patient, parent, grandparent or sibling – at any stage of treatment, after treatment or if you are bereaved, so everyone is welcome.

Please note that Candlelighters in your Community is here to help you meet others affected by childhood cancer in your local area. Therefore we will have various events running in a variety of locations across Yorkshire, we kindly ask that you attend the Community Days in your local area and do not travel out of your area to attend Community Days in other locations.
