Coping with cancer stress

A free online course to help you reduce anxiety, feel calmer and more relaxed.

Paul's Cancer Support Centre in Battersea is running this new 'flexible' online course to teach relaxation and coping skills.

You can sign up for this course and start it at any time. The course is flexible so that participants can take part in 12 sessions at their own pace, when they feel well enough.

Partners, family members and carers are also encouraged to take part so they can provide support to the person with cancer and learn to deal with their own stress. Although this is an online course, participants are not expected to have advanced computer skills and there is an IT support person if anyone has any IT problems during the course.

Booking and further information

WW1 Centenary: All and Everyone - the town Hall in the Great War

Exhibition on how the local area endured WW1.

Battersea Town Hall had a vital and versatile role during the First World War: a tribunal for conscientious objectors, a recruitment centre, a meeting place for the Women’s Social and Political Union, an air raid shelter.

This exhibition is about how the local area endured the Great War. It is a snapshot of our history and the people who have passed through these doors.
