The group was set up to address the need for support in the community for people with cancer and their families. This initiative is the result of local community members coming together to address the need for cancer support services in their county. Cois Nore continues to be volunteer led by the community for the community.

Cois Nore In it Together

The CLIMB programme was invaluable to us. My 10 year old was so relieved to meet other children that were in the same situation as her was and realise that she was not alone. She actively looked forward to the weekly sessions as they were so packed with chat, information and fun! She become more open and able to talk about cancer and most especially her own emotions regarding same. This programmes so well put together with such kind, dedicated professional leaders. The 6 weeks absolutely flew but the information, empowerment and self belief gained will last a lifetime.”


Cois Nore is like a second family, it’s a place of safety, there is an unspoken understanding.”
