Your Support is Really Powerful.​

Our vision is clear. We want to improve the quality of life for people impacted by breast cancer by establishing the first bespoke breast cancer support and wellbeing centre in Scotland.

The House of Hope will provide access to funded wellbeing and holistic therapies and services away from the sterile hospital or clinical setting to compliment medical treatments.

Pathway to The House of Hope:

Help us to create Scotland’s first dedicated breast cancer wellbeing and support centre and you will make a difference to the thousands of people diagnosed in Scotland every year.

You can help us to reach our initial target of £500,000 by donating now!

There are many other ways to support the project including holding or taking part in a fundraising event, corporate sponsorship or donating your time or skills to help us achieve this goal.

Further information on how you can join us on the pathway to The House of Hope can be found here.
