Born in 2005, we were originally known as The Pink Ladies Breast Cancer Support Group. In 2023, we rebranded to Hive Cancer Support to encompass all of our progress, developments and service offerings.

Our voluntary initiative was founded in collaboration between the Bogside & Brandywell Women’s Group, the Bogside & Brandywell Health Forum (BBHF) and representatives from the local health authority, who identified a high rate of Breast Cancer in the area.

The group flourished under the guidance and support of the BBHF, and in 2009 it became a standalone registered charity based at The Gasyard Centre.

We identified a growing demand to support people with all types of Cancer. As a result, we now offer a wraparound, holistic, person-centred approach to supporting families affected, both directly and indirectly, by Cancer.

After recognising the importance of Cancer awareness, early detection, and prevention, we established our Education Strategy which evolved into hosting workshops and information events.

Hive Cancer Support promotes vibrant, informed communities and has now expanded to include continued provision of extended quality service to local people in Creggan.
