How Does It Work

Contact the office at Cancer Lifeline and you will be booked in for a telephone assessment with the lead facilitator.

Participants need to be physically independent and willing to participate in the programme.

(Please note that the breaks are not suitable for those in the final stages of disease)


The breaks are held at a venue near Totnes in Devon.


Throughout the year.

How Many?

Groups will consist of a maximum of 12 people who will be patients and/or carers. The groups are co-ordinated and facilitated by Cancer Lifeline Staff who are present throughout.

How Much?

There is no charge for the breaks.

Our commitment is to offer breaks to anyone – regardless of their financial situation. However, a refundable deposit is required to secure your place.
