How can Target Ovarian Cancer support you?
Our support courses and materials
We want to ensure that women living with, and beyond, ovarian cancer have access to good quality emotional and practical support. Our range of courses and materials support the valuable work of Clinical Nurse Specialists and local support centres.
Our work is free of charge and available throughout the UK.

A positive, informal day event. Our Being Together days bring together women affected by ovarian cancer in their local area. Each event is a great opportunity to learn more about us, meet other women with ovarian cancer and take part in activities which usually include relaxation workshops, tips on raising symptoms awareness and making the most of me time: share ideas about how to get the most out of life. Recent days have taken place in Newcastle and Perth, Scotland and we are in the middle of planning the new programme now.
If you would like to receive more information or attend one of our future events please e-mail Karin or call 0207 923 5475.
For new or experienced ovarian cancer awareness raisers our training days give you the ideas and skills you need to make your awareness session a great success! Our next training courses are being held in:
- Perth, Scotland, 24th May 2014, Salutation Hotel
June 18th - 20th 2013, Penny Brohn, Bristol
Target Ovarian Cancer is delighted to be working with Penny Brohn Cancer Care to offer younger women with ovarian cancer the opportunity to spend 3 days / 2 nights participating in the Penny Brohn Living Well course. This is a superb opportunity for younger women to explore the impact of ovarian cancer on emotions and relationships. Participants experience different ways to help with anxiety and stress management through relaxation, mindfulness and imagery. This course is for younger women and will look at issues faced by younger women with ovarian cancer such as loss of fertility, how to support children through your cancer, relationships, getting back to work and sexual issues.
This course is FREE and places are strictly limited so pre-booking is essential
