How we can help
This section of our website explains what we do at The Mulberry Centre, and the many ways we might be able to help you or a loved one.
The Mulberry Centre is a cancer information and support centre with a welcoming and non-clinical environment based within the grounds of West Middlesex Hospital in Isleworth. We are a registered charity and the majority of our funding comes from charitable donations.
Our aim is to deliver a range of information and support services to all people affected by a diagnosis of cancer: the cancer patient bereaved by cancer and the main carer/supporter. Although most our users come from the London Boroughs of Hounslow, Richmond and Ealing, owing to our extensive telephone support, we are open to all, regardless of postcode or hospital of diagnosis. We have also recently extended our services to include people affected in a similar way by COVID-19.
If you are wondering whether you could benefit from the support of The Mulberry Centre, take a look at our ‘Who we help’ page. Alternatively, for an overview of the broad range of services we offer, check out our ‘Support and Services’ page, as well as our ‘Support from a distance’ page to see the services we offer remotely in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
We are committed to providing individual, tailor-made support to all our clients, enabling people to seek emotional and practical support in the way that works best for them. Therefore, we continually review our workshops and services to make sure they fit the needs of our users.
We also understand that people with cancer, and those who care for them, often have a busy schedule of hospital appointments and treatment regimes. We are therefore committed to ensuring flexibility in the provision of all our appointments.
