Working locally to support anyone affected by cancer

At FORCE Cancer Charity we believe that anyone diagnosed with cancer deserves the best possible treatment and professional support close to home. Since 1987 we have been funding local research and buying equipment to improve patient care. In 2004 we opened our Cancer Support and Information Centre in the grounds of the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital. The Centre is open every weekday 9:30-4:30 (Wednesdays 6:30) for people needing physical, emotional, psychological and practical support at a difficult time in their lives. We also offer support and information sessions once a week in Tiverton and Okehampton. All our services are free. Learn more about our charity
