About Us

The Croakies Head & Neck Support Group was set up in March 2004 in order to provide social support, advice and contact with others who have gone through treatment for head and neck cancer – the name “Croakies” was chosen by the founders.

Patients, their families and friends are welcome.

Attending the group has helped many increase their confidence in social settings.

The group is keen to support each other and any new patient who needs further guidance extra support.

We are contributing in a variety of ways to the development and improvement of head and neck cancer services in Bradford, Airedale and the surrounding areas – many of our members are actively involved with advisory and working groups to assist in improving patient care and welfare by influencing service improvement in cancer services.

The group holds a monthly raffle with prize donations from the members – the raffle is always drawn at the end of a meeting and funds raised help to subsidise group outings etc.

We are extremely grateful to the Cancer Support Yorkshire for allowing us the use of a room and facilities to hold our meetings.
