At FORCE Cancer Charity we believe that anyone diagnosed with cancer deserves the best possible treatment and professional support, face to face and close to home.

We have a Cancer Support and Information Centre in Exeter for patients and their loved ones who need physical, emotional, psychological and practical support.

We offer support and information once a week in Okehampton, Tiverton and Honiton and pay for the specialist nurses who deliver chemotherapy in all three locations.

We also fund local research and buy equipment to improve patient care.

All our services are free.

During the Coronavirus pandemic, we redesigned our services so that we could continue to offer support for those in need.

COVID-19 limited face-to-face contact with the people we support because access to our centres has been severely impacted.

But counselling for individuals and families, information and advice on claiming benefits and how to exercise safely are all available on the phone or via video calls.

We have also introduced online support groups and produced new resources to offer as wide a range of help as possible.

Since the charity was founded in 1987, we have raised £22million for support, equipment and research. FORCE receives no regular Government or NHS funding. We need to raise £1.7million every year to maintain the services we offer. That money comes almost entirely from voluntary contributions - legacies, donations, the FORCE charity shop and from fundraising events. Fantastic support from the community we serve enables FORCE to fulfil its mission to support anyone locally affected by cancer.
