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

We are here to help, whatever your cancer and wherever you are on your cancer journey. Our Support Centre offers a relaxed and comfortable setting where patients, their families and friends can get information, advice and help. You don’t need a referral so you can drop in at any time and there’s no charge for any of our services. Learn more about the work we do to support you.
All our services are paid for with funds generated entirely by FORCE with no Government funding. None of what we do would be possible without the generous support of local people. You can support us in so many ways – with donations, by taking part in fundraising events, organising your own fundraiser or giving your time as a volunteer. Discover how you can help us fight cancer.
