Our team

All of our active volunteers have received full training from Cancer Support France. However, we are not medically trained.

Some of our volunteers have experienced cancer themselves and so understand first-hand the emotional effects of the disease and the treatment.

Some of our volunteers speak fluent French and will be able to help you communicate more effectively with your doctors.

In addition to our support team, we have volunteers responsible for organisation and administration, including:

  • President
  • Secretary / Membership
  • Client Support / Helpline
  • Treasurer
  • Events / Fundraising
  • Publicity

To contact any of the team you can email us at csf.languedoc@gmail.com, or you can call us on: 04 67 44 87 06.

Would you like to help us? 

We are always looking for more people to join us either as Friends or Volunteers.

Everyone who delivers these services does so without payment.

We have professional standards that are set out and used as the basis for all our service delivery and training. 

CSF-Languedoc has signed a convention of partnership with ICM (Institut régional du Cancer de Montpellier, Val D’Aurelle). ICM is one of 20 centres of excellence for research and the treatment of cancer and looks after patients across the whole Languedoc-Roussillon region.

This accreditation enables us to work alongside their staff to support our clients.
