Advice and Tips
If you are interested in setting up a new group, please get in touch with us and we will contact you. We can help directly with detailed advice and support, including face to face advice meetings and on-going support and guidance, and can provide one to one assistance to potential group leaders.
If you would like us to provide a speaker for a group session, we're very happy to come along and talk about ABC UK's work, our plans and how we can work together. It is very important to us to get input from bladder cancer patients on what we can do to help them, and we're keen to involve patient groups in our work.
We're always happy to hear from group leaders about how we might work together - so please contact us if you have any questions or suggestions. If you would like to link up with other groups, let us know and we can also help with that. Let us know if you would like us to publicise any events on our social media, in our news, or on our website, or if you would like us to help you reach new members to join your group.
