Our Grove House buidling

Information and Support Centre

If you have been diagnosed with cancer or another life-limiting illness, or are just concerned about it, you or your carer or family member might need some more information and support.

Our Information & Support Centre offers you a friendly, confidential environment where there is time for you to ask questions, share your concerns and obtain up-to-date information.

Who can come?

The Information & Support Centre is open to all – no appointment is needed.

What will happen when I get there?

Our staff and trained volunteers will help you to find the most relevant information for you. This may include details about:

  • Cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, their treatments and side-effects
  • Managing the impact of cancer and other life-limiting illnesses and practical issues
  • Advice about benefits
  • Support groups
  • Local services

  • You can also find out about how Rennie Grove Hospice Care is able to support you and your family throughout your illness.

When is the Information & Support Centre open?

The Information & Support Centre is open from Monday to Friday, 10am – 4pm.

Where is the Information & Support Centre?

It is at Grove House, which is located next to St Albans City Hospital. There is a limited amount of free parking available in a barriered private car park at the rear of Grove House which is allocated on a first come, first served basis.

What does it cost?

Like all Rennie Grove services, the Information & Support Centre is provided at no cost to its users. As a registered charity, we rely on the generosity of the local community to fund around 85% of our annual running costs, allowing us to care for​ thousands of patients and families every year.
