We were established in July 2012 under the group name 'Haywards Heath Prostate Cancer Support Group' but rebranded in 2020 to cover a larger area and also welcome people from further afield.
Our meetings offer opportunities for those affected by prostate cancer, their wives/partners, families and friends to share experiences and to learn more about the treatment of prostate cancer and current research.
Guest speakers join us to give up-to–date, valuable information and to lead discussion.

We aim to:
Organise regular meetings, currently three times per year, according to the needs and wishes of our members.
Provide accurate and up-to-date information in co-operation with professionals but will not give medical advice or make recommendations
Ensure that we listen to one another, that we welcome everyone equally and that we make sure everyone participating understands and respects confidentiality.
How we run:
Our meetings are usually held at The Dolphin Surgery Meeting Room, Haywards Heath, but occasionally at other locations.
We are not funded by the NHS and have a small annual subscription of £5 per family, normally payable in July, to cover running expenses.
We have a small Committee of members who plan each meeting. They always welcome suggestions for future meetings.
