Offering care and support and so much more...

Welcome to the Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre - the centre for everyone affected by cancer. 

We are here to help. Receiving a diagnosis of cancer is a difficult, stressful and emotional time for both the patient and those around them. We provide a range of services to support you from the point of diagnosis, through your treatment and beyond; in fact for as long as you need us. You are not on your own.  Come to the Olive Tree where you can meet and speak with people who understand and can help.

The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre is an independent charity providing a range of support to cancer patients, their carers and families. Formerly known as the cancer self-help group Crawley Cancer Contact, the group was co-founded in 1990 by Heather Goodare and others and was granted charitable status in 1992. The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre opened in its present location in the grounds of Crawley Hospital in July 2009.

The cornerstones of our provision are in the areas of information, emotional support and complementary therapy. However, we have an ever expanding offer of additional services including a coaching programme, singing workshops and social events. The centre is open for information and enquiries from 9.30 am – 5.30 pm Monday to Thursday and 9.30am – 4.30pm on Friday. We look forward to welcoming you to our centre.
