Nearer To Home

A new cancer support
centre for the heart of Norwich

Our vision to bring greater cancer care nearer to home.

Every day we see first hand the impact cancer has on individuals, families and friends. Around 1,100 people every year are diagnosed with cancer in the Norwich area. This makes up 14% of the 8,400 people that are diagnosed with cancer each year in Norfolk and Waveney.

This, coupled with the fact that more people are living longer with and beyond cancer, means Big C’s support services are in higher demand than ever before.

This is why we have launched the ‘nearer to home’ appeal. We need to raise £500,000 to build a new Cancer Support Centre in the heart of the Norwich community.

Help us create a space that will changes lives.

Working with Norwich based architects, Purcell, we are repurposing an existing building on Dereham Road in Norwich to develop an accessible, open space for local people affected by cancer. Using the design of our existing Centre at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital as inspiration, we will create an innovative, modern, caring environment to provide the very best care.

We need your support.

To make this vision a reality, we need you. Every pound donated to the appeal will go directly to the build and development of this vital new Centre to support local people. 

Will this replace your existing Norwich Centre?

No, our existing Norwich Centre in the grounds of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital will still be there.

We know that it is not always easy for people to visit our Centre at the hospital, or they do not wish to return to the hospital once they have finished treatment.

This is why the new Norwich Centre will work alongside our existing Centre, to ensure that everyone affected by cancer in Norwich and the surrounding area has access to the best care and support, close to the community, where and when they need us most.
