The Leveson Centre - A support centre for people living with Cancer
The Leveson Centre
Fully funded and managed by York Against Cancer, The Leveson Centre opened in February of 2023, bringing with it a whole range of services to support cancer patients, their friends and their families across North and East Yorkshire.
Located next to York Against Cancer’s gift shop at the York Community Stadium, Huntington, the space provides a friendly, welcoming ‘home-from-home’ environment for patients, friends, and families to visit and access support or just to drop in for a cup of coffee and a chat.
The Leveson Centre is open Monday-Saturday to drop in for a cuppa and a chat. We also have a range of services running from the Centre to support people living with cancer. Find out more here.
Coffee and chat
Every Wednesday morning, The Leveson Centre hosts a relaxed coffee morning between 10am-12:30pm. Open to anyone affected by cancer, pop in for a cuppa and a chat, meet people who understand what you’re going through or just take a moment for yourself in one of our comfortable seating areas.
The Leveson Centre offers a range of support services dedicated to helping individuals on a personal level.
Cancer patients looking to return to work post-treatment can book in an appointment with Occupational Health Nurse Karen. These sessions are free of charge and open to anyone who would like advice on cancer and the workplace.
Chartered Clinical Psychologist Rebecca holds appointments in The Leveson Centre, alongside therapy dog Luna. Rebecca offers free psychological services for young people with family members going through cancer.
We offer 6 free sessions of complementary therapy for cancer patients to aid with general well-being, reduce stress and ease the side effects of cancer treatment. Choose from a range of therapies such as reiki, hypnotherapy, aromatherapy and more; get in touch to be put on the waiting list.
Weekly Pilates classes run on Fridays in The Leveson Centre for cancer patients to enjoy a full body workout that improves muscle tone, flexibility, strength and balance. Our experienced instructor can modify exercises to suit all fitness levels, including chair-based exercises.
Complementary therapist Alethea leads a Progressive Muscle Relaxation Group each week to teach techniques on deep relaxation.
The Leveson Centre is proud to offer regular Look Good Feel Better workshops for cancer patients. Run by beauty industry experts, these sessions can help you manage the physical side effects of your cancer treatment and meet others in similar situations.
Every Tuesday morning between 10:30-12pm, The Leveson Centre runs a Wellbeing Choir open to anyone affected by cancer, dedicated to uplifting your spirits, whether you’re a practised songbird or completely new to the scene – everyone is welcome.
