SCCSG helps bring the members of cancer support groups together.

There are many support groups in Scotland each of which provides support to people affected by cancer in the communities in which they meet.

SCCSG provides opportunities for exchange of information and mutual support.

Our regular conferences enable members to discuss areas of common concern, to learn about recent developments in research and treatment and to share information which will help improve quality of life.


  • “I have learned so much from the conference and without the experience gained I could not have stepped up to run a support group.“

  • “The networking, exchanging ideas and learning from each others experiences, send us home all fired up, excited and inspired to help more people go through their cancer journey.”

  • “My first experience and I really got a lot from it, mixing, listening, sharing and getting new ideas.. A real boost to carry on in our own group.”

  • “There are so many new things to learn from others and I also feel it was great for building up my confidence. The atmosphere is so positive and vibrant.”
