About Us

About us scaled

Gort Cancer Support was established in June 2007 to provide support and practical assistance to people affected by a cancer diagnosis in the South Galway/North Clare area.

Our Cancer Support Centre is managed and operated by trained volunteers with the assistance of administrative staff and professional therapists.

We offer a confidential community based support service and adopt a holistic approach towards our clients and their family members by providing a range of activities and social events, which will enhance our clients’ wellbeing and coping skills. We offer a home from home environment, a place where you will be made feel relaxed and welcome. These services include Confidential Support, Counselling & Psychotherapy, Complementary Therapies, Lymph Drainage Therapy and a Transport Service as well as Art Classes, Tai Chi Classes and Card Games to name but a few.

Hollyblue House could not survive without the hard work and dedication of our amazing team. Made up of administrative assistants on a Community Employment Scheme, and a group of wonderful volunteers, together we have welcomed and supported hundreds of people who have availed of our services since we opened our doors in 2007
