Cork ARC Cancer Support House
Each year, Cork ARC continues to positively impact the lives of over one thousand people with cancer, their families and carers. Established in 2001, our service is nurse led, professional and confidential, offering a wide range of programmes and therapies from our welcoming and homely centres in Cork city and Bantry. We offer a confidential, holistic and safe environment providing much needed emotional and psychological support for all those affected by cancer. All services are free of charge.
Cork ARC is a powerful community of an almost one hundred strong volunteer team delivering over 8,400 services to people at any stage of their cancer journey. With less than 5% Government funding, we rely on generosity from private giving, grant funding, community based events and the business community.
In 2019, we moved our services to the newly refurbished Sarsfield House in Wilton, where we aim to be a benchmark centre of excellence for the provision of non-clinical cancer support in Ireland. The total funding required to achieve this is €1.5m and you can follow our progress on the #Room4ARC Campaign at www.room4arc.ie.
