Staying Connected

Supporting the Ovarian Cancer community through the COVID-19 period

Please tell us: how can we support you? 

Back in April, we launched Staying Connected with our friends at Ovacome - a programme designed to help our community feel connected, supported and uplifted throughout these uncertain times.  

We are happy to announce that Staying Connected will be continuing over autumn and into the new year - and we want to make sure Staying Connected changes with you. 

We know that what our community wanted and needed earlier in the year may be different to what they need now. That’s why we’re asking if you can spare 15 minutes to tell us how you have been affected by Covid-19 and how we can support you in the coming months.

Click here to get started. Thank you for your time. 

Staying connected 

Our Staying Connected service will continue to include regular email updates, and informative videos, interviews, and interactive video sessions where you can speak to experts directly and ask them your questions. The service will be really easy to use and we’ll have staff at the ready to help anyone with questions. 

We will be adding new online events to our Staying Connected Hub and will be in touch to let you know what’s in store. In the meantime, you can re-watch our previous webinars below. 

We appreciate that many members of our community will now be staying at home to protect the health and safety of both themselves and those around them. Working together, we feel that is our 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.

If you’d like us to keep you up to date with this advice, information from clinicians and tips on wellbeing during this difficult time please sign up here.
