Every woman's experience of cancer is different, but talking to another woman who has had cancer can help. Our highly trained and professional Peer Support Volunteers give you emotional support, understanding, hope and comfort.

Counterpart's model is valued and trusted by the health professionals we work with. We never provide medical, legal or financial advice or counselling.

Our confidential services include:

  • Peer Support (in person or over the phone): Emotional and practical support from women who have experienced cancer and have been trained in providing this support.
  • Information resources: Reliable, evidenced-based information tailored to individual needs to assist women adjusting to life following a cancer diagnosis.
  • Events and workshops: Creative and informative sessions with qualified health professionals.
  • Making Connections: Tailored support for women with advanced or metastatic cancer.
