Staying Connected is our new remote support service, provided in partnership with Ovarian Cancer Action, the UK's ovarian cancer research charity. The service is designed to help our community to feel connected, supported and informed during these unprecedented times.

We appreciate that many members of our community will now be staying at home to protect their health and safety and that of those around them. We feel that is our collective responsibility to ensure that there are ways for the ovarian cancer community to stay in touch and continue to empower themselves with information about how they can support their personal health and wellbeing. Ovacome and Ovarian Cancer Action staff will be working together to provide accurate, up-to-date and timely information and support.

Our Staying Connected service includes informative videos, interviews, and interactive video sessions where you can speak to experts directly and ask them your questions. We are running regular group sessions where you can speak with others affected by ovarian cancer, all the while supported by our team. The service is easy to use and our team are here to help.

Our new callback service

While a lot of our new services are online, we know that some people prefer telephone calls. Through our new callback service, our support team can offer up-to-date information, emotional support and a chance to talk through anything that’s on your mind. 

If you would like to arrange a one-off or regular chat with a member of our team, call Laura on 07586 899 334.  

Please leave a message with your name, contact number, what day and time you would like us to call you back, any communication needs, and the area you are calling from. 

If you know someone affected by ovarian cancer who is isolated and can't access online support, please pass the information above on to them.

Now, more than ever, it's good to chat.
