Who we help
The Mulberry Centre is here to support cancer patients, their carers, friends and families, and the bereaved. We also offer our services to those in need of non-cancer-related, end-of-life care, subject to certain conditions.
The Mulberry Centre has no postcode boundaries, meaning that if we are convenient for you, then you are more than welcome to access our services, no matter where you live or your hospital of diagnosis.
We have recently extended our services to include anyone affected by COVID-19, by offering remote support so that you can use our services online from the comfort of your home. To find out more check out ‘Support from a distance’
Living with cancer affects people in many ways. We are here to support you from diagnosis, throughout your treatment and recovery, with an individual, tailor-made package to enhance your wellbeing.
Carers, Friends & Family
The Centre supports wives, husbands, partners, parents, sons, daughters, friends and carers. You might think of yourself as just looking after someone close to you; but if you are the main supporter of the patient, then you are treated as a carer.
The physical, emotional and psychological needs of carers can all too easily be overlooked. At The Mulberry Centre, we include carers at the heart of our thinking, and provide them with emotional support and practical advice on how best to support a cancer patient.
We continue to support carers, family, and friends when they are bereaved. Most of us welcome talking to others when a person close to us has died. We usually rely on friends and family, but they can also be grieving, so it can help greatly to have independent support from The Mulberry Centre.
End of Life Care / Bereavement Counselling for Non-Cancer
Please take a look at our End of Life Care page if you have been affected by any life-limiting illness, even other than cancer, and:
● you live or work in the Borough of Hounslow, or
● you, a family member, or someone you have cared for has been a patient at West Middlesex University Hospital.
Young people with cancer
Although we do not specialise in supporting young people with cancer, we do offer information and counselling for young people with a close family member or parent with a diagnosis. There are a number of organisations that specialise in supporting teenagers and young adults with cancer. Please do get in touch should you require any more information.
