We know first hand how hard daily life can sometimes be, this is a safe place to share triumphs, struggles or simply to vent. Both emotional and social support can make a big difference and also gives you the opportunity to connect with people in similar situations.
This is a closed group where you can share in a safe and completely confidential space.

A big thank you to our wonderful volunteers and group members…..We couldn’t have done this without you!
Ray of Light Wales Cancer Support want to help gather information and opinions from carers, friends and family to capture their views.
We would be very grateful if you could spend a few minutes to complete this survey which will give you the opportunity to have your say.
We would like to reassure you that your details will not be provided to any third party and your answers will be anonymous.
We really appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey.
Thank you, Diolch.

We are looking to get our Walking Group off the ground and we also have the opportunity for the first donations we raise online to be doubled! So if you would like to support us then now is the perfect time to do so. For example £2 will become £4 (or £4.50 with gift aid). We would be so grateful for any support you can give even sharing this message. For more information or to donate, all you need to do is follow this link: localgiving.org/rayoflightwales
