With the ongoing Covid-19 crisis in mind the committee have taken the difficult decision to cancel all of our meetings for May, June, July and August. we hope that the meetings will be allowed to recommence in September. This is a fluid situation and another view will be taken closer to September to confirm or further delay the start of our meetings once again. I trust you are all keeping well. Please view our webpage for further updates.CORONAVIRUS – COVID 19

 At our meeting last night 12TH MARCH 2020  we decided as a group, that in the light of the escalating Government advice regarding Coronavirus, that it was prudent to make an early decision on the future of our next few meetings.

 We decided that it was probably for the best to reschedule our next few meetings

 Regretfully I have to advise that the meetings scheduled for:-


26/03/20 Claire Farrer and “Shirley” Rtd.
09/04/20 Siobhan Taylor
23/04/20 Professor Jo Morris


will not go ahead, but will be rescheduled for some future programme date.

 I hope you understand that we have not taken this decision lightly, but because the majority of our members have vulnerable and compromised immune systems or they are close to a family member that has, we thought it best to act sooner rather than make any last minute decisions.

 We hope to reschedule these speakers for a future meeting date

 We would really hope that you understand our decision

 If anyone wishes to contact me or any other committee member or group member please feel free to do so either by phone or email as we still need to support each other.

Welcome to the Solihull Cancer Support Group.

We offer the assistance of people with skills and experience who can help you to concentrate your resources so that you are able to play an active part in your own healing process.

We aim to compliment the conventional medical services by giving time and resources where at present they are scarce.

We are available to cancer patients, people who have had cancer, relatives and friends of those with cancer and those who have been bereaved through cancer.

We aim to dispel the feelings of paralysing fear and helplessness that just the mention of cancer so often causes, quite unjustifiably, in our society.
