What are our face to face meetings like?
Our meetings are whatever you want them to be (within reason, of course). Numbers vary from month to month with between about 12 and 20 men coming along. Some months we have a guest speaker for part of the meeting but the emphasis is always on you being able to talk about what's going on with you and for you to get support from other group members. We try to "tell it like it is" based on our own personal experience of prostate cancer. As we're all different it's likely you'll hear different experiences. People invariably mention things they've read about prostate cancer or its treatments, but we encourage everyone to keep it personal rather than focus on general information.
We provide some snacks and tea and coffee. You need to book a place at a meeting so it's always best to contact us first so we can make sure you know how to find us and that the group is going to be what you're looking for and so we can ensure that we have sufficient space for all attendees.
From August 2021 we returned to face-to-face meetings once a month and online meetings once a month. We continue to arrange one-to-one phone buddying. From February 2022 - As the Covid situation has changed we return to online and face-to-face meetings.

If the Coronavirus situation changes - we will update this page if we need to cancel face-to-face meetings again.
