We are here to support people with cancer and their whānau. We are part of the Canterbury-West Coast Division of the Cancer Society.

Referral form

Our services are available to anyone diagnosed with cancer, as well as family/whānau. 

You can use this form if you would like to use our services yourself or if you are a health professional or family member who would like to refer someone else to our services.

If you or a member of your whānau have received a cancer diagnosis, you can just ring us on 0800 226 237. You don't need to be referred by a health professional.
