Romsey Cancer Support Centre, a local charity that provides emotional and practical support to anyone whose life is affected by cancer. This can be the person living with cancer, or a family member, close friend, carer or partner. Jane Scarth House, our support centre, and from where we deliver our services, opened in 1995 and was founded in memory of Romsey resident and mother of two, Jane Scarth, whose family to this day remain closely involved with the work of the charity.
Jane Scarth House provides a range of expert professional and confidential services and complementary therapies to help people affected by cancer: from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. We offer a wide range of services and these can include counselling, complementary therapies (aromatherapy massage, reiki, reflexology, Indian head massage and simple lymphatic massage), a legal clinic, benefits clinic, HOPE course, meditation, Qigong, craft for wellbeing, bereavement Sunday lunches and separate men’s and women’s coffee support groups. In the Centre we have a team of committed, trained counsellors, therapists and befrienders.
