Changes To The Source

We are making some changes to The Source, meaning you will no longer be able to ‘Login’, ‘Register’ or ‘Share a tip’ on the site. However, you can continue to browse our existing tips to find help and support about how to support someone you know with cancer. If you are looking for a place to share tips or talk to other people affected by cancer, please join our Online Community. If you have any questions about this change, please email

All the most popular tips can be found on the homepage stream. But if you're interested in a specific category then you can browse by selecting 'Browse Tips'.

Once you've found a useful tip, why not share it with your friends, or like it to let the person who wrote it know that you found it helpful?
