CLAN Cancer Support for all

CLAN is a shining light of hope in the dark for anyone affected by cancer. We provide the emotional and practical support needed to ensure their wellbeing needs are taken care of at all stages of their cancer journey.

Over 37 years, CLAN’s services have grown significantly to address the emotional and social impacts of cancer, including counselling, emotional support and wellbeing services aimed at reducing stress and pain, across the north-east, Moray, Orkney and Shetland. CLAN supports over 2,500 people every year across 13 community locations from Shetland to Aberdeen.

With over 20,000 people living with cancer across the region, CLAN’s support services are more vital than ever. However, it cost £2.6 million per year to provide the services to the communities we operate in and we cannot do so without the support of people and businesses across the country.

How your donation helps CLAN

You could provide the listening ear and the cup of tea for anyone coming through the doors of our drop-in seeking comfort and support during their cancer journey.


You could provide 1:1 sessions for young people through our dedicated Children and Families Service.

You could help fund a stay in our Haven accommodation for those going through cancer treatment far away from home and their loved ones.
