Local Groups

Liverpool

About our group:

Our group is still fairly new to Keeping Abreast and we are looking forward to being able to support ladies from in and around Liverpool. We offer a friendly and informal opportunity for you to speak to women who have been through similar experiences and see the results of reconstructive surgery. We can also offer support to women who have had other types of breast surgery after a cancer diagnosis.

Where we meet:

Breast Unit, Third Floor, Linda McCartney Centre, Royal Liverpool University Hospital

When we meet:

We usually meet on the last Tuesday of every month at 6pm and we usually offer a bra-fitting service on the same days as our Support Groups, with the service starting at 5pm (booking is essential for this).

**CANCELLED**

However, due to the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation, face-to-face Support Group meetings cannot currently take place and so these meeting have been cancelled until further notice. However, you can still contact us via the email addresses listed below, via Facebook at: Keeping Abreast – Liverpool Support Group or via our Central Services office at: info@keepingabreast.org.uk and on 01603 819113.

Want to help?

As a new group, we are on the look-out for a number of volunteers to join us to help run the group so we can offer support to more women considering and undergoing breast reconstruction. Ideally, we are looking for some previous reconstruction patients who would be willing to talk to others about their journeys, and also some individuals to help with the administrative side of things. If you might be interested, please contact either Karen or Susan or the Keeping Abreast Head Office on the numbers below.

Alternatively you can send us a message via our Volunteers Page here

Nick of Time:

As well as supporting women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and looking to have an immediate or delayed reconstruction, Keeping Abreast also supports those women looking to have elective reconstruction surgery due the discovery of a breast cancer gene. This support is provided by our sister group ‘Nick of Time’. It is likely that there will be elective surgery patients at your local group, but if you would like specific information or further details please contact Nick of Time.
