CLAN offers and hosts a number of group and social activities both at CLAN House in Aberdeen and our many bases in the community.
Most groups and activities are provided free of charge and all are available to anyone affected by cancer - patients, carers and family members. Each group provides friendship, peer group support and relaxation in a welcoming and supportive environment. You do not need to make a booking - you will be made very welcome. You can find out what is currently available at your local CLAN centre here.
Arts & Crafts
Opportunity to meet with others affected by cancer who share an interest in arts, craft, knitting and crochet. Materials are provided but you are welcome to bring along your own projects.
An informal group activity lasting one hour. It is designed to help alleviate stress by incorporating Qigong breathing techniques, meditation and visualisation.
Gentle Yoga Group
A gentle class with yoga-style stretching that can be practiced by anyone of any age. The sessions are especially designed to help flexibility and mobility. Exercises can be done either sitting in a chair or lying on the floor.
Words for Wellbeing
Expressive writing can have a positive impact on wellbeing.
Children & Teens Groups
Social and fun activities for children and young people affected by cancer. These groups usually meet monthly on Saturdays and more regularly during school holidays.
Many of our community bases hold regular coffee mornings, often inviting a guest speaker and always making sure there is time to chat with others. CLAN House coffee mornings only take place as part of specific events which will be detailed on our website.
