Paul's Cancer Support Centre

A new look for Paul's Cancer Support Centre

Paul’s works to improve the lives & wellbeing of people affected by cancer. Every weekday up to 40 people visit our Centre for advice & therapies such as massage. We've moved to new premises but some of our fittings & furnishings are tired & worn. Our challenge is to raise funds for replacements

Situation

We aim to offer a warm, welcoming setting for people who come to us at a very difficult time in their lives. We want our Centre in Battersea to be as comfortable as possible but some of the equipment and furnishings which moved with us from our old premises is now in need of replacement. The project will allow us to renew some essential items and create a brighter environment for clients.

Solution

With input from our clients and staff, we have created a list of priorities for the Centre's upgrade. For example, our three counselling & therapy rooms are sparsely furnished, and new chairs, stools and storage will create more comfortable surroundings. The Centre has large south facing windows and new blinds will offer shade and keep rooms cool on sunny days. Some treatment rooms have harsh strip lighting, and freestanding lamps will create a softer feel.
