About the charity

Clan Cancer Support is the largest, independent cancer support charity in the north of Scotland and helps 1,200 people affected by a cancer diagnosis every year.

Since its inception in 1983, Clan has developed specialist knowledge and understanding of how a cancer diagnosis impacts not just the person diagnosed, but also their wider circle of family and close friends. The charity provides professional counselling, complementary therapies, nutrition and wellbeing activities, information and dedicated support for children and families across north-east Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.

Our centres are not medical settings, but they are recognised by the NHS with doctors and specialists regularly referring patients to Clan to help support individuals throughout their cancer journey.
