Support plays a very important part in adjusting to living with Pelvic Radiation Disease (PRD). We have a number of support services available that are free to access for people living with symptoms of PRD.
The support we provide does not replace professional care and we are unable to offer medical advice or connect you with healthcare professionals directly. Please seek advice from your doctor in the first instance to discuss concerns that your symptoms could be related to your previous radiotherapy treatment, regardless of how long ago you received it.
Have you been signposted to us or found us after doing your own research? Are your symptoms pointing to you having Pelvic Radiation Disease? Our Let’s Talk programme is for people who have had radiotherapy and would to understand more about PRD, even if it has been years or even decades since treatment. Our Let’s Talk programme is currently undergoing further development, watch this space.
Our Out and About Toolkit contains information with practical tips to help you to self-manage PRD as well as handy tools such like a RADAR key and a ‘just can’t wait’ toilet card to make venturing out less daunting.
Our friendly Online Community – a safe and supportive space for people living with Pelvic Radiation Disease (PRD) to share their experiences, ask questions, and learn from others.
Our monthly Chat Together peer support group where people can share their experience of PRD in a supportive and informal group.
Find information on our Benefits and financial support page including help with: prescriptions costs, water bills and benefits you may be entitled to.
