About Cancer Information & Support Services. ( CISS )
About This Shop
Cancer Information and Support Services (CISS) is a registered charity that was set up in 1993 to help those with cancer in South West Wales.
The first cancer information centre opened in Swansea early in 1994. Due to increasing demands for the service, a second centre was opened, with the aid of Lottery funding, in Neath in 2004. A successful lottery grant allowed us to expand our service in these areas, and to extend our outreach service into Carmarthenshire, where no such support existed. During the first three years, CISS has supported over twice the number of individuals that we had predicted needing our support. Since its inception, CISS has supported in excess of 120,000 individuals across South West Wales.
CISS supports anyone affected by cancer, whether they are a patient, carer, friend, or family member. Our support extends across South West Wales from Bridgend in the East to Carmarthenshire in the West. We have over eighty volunteers who give their valuable time to the organisation, whether they sit on our Board of Trustees, are a qualified counsellor or volunteer in one of our three shops in Swansea, Neath, or Carmarthen. We carry out home and hospital visits, man a 24-hour helpline from 9 am to 9 pm 365 days a year, and offer support at our counselling & information centres across the region.
