Head and Neck Cancer Support Aotearoa is a charitable trust established in 2020 to support New Zealand head and neck cancer patients and their whānau from diagnosis through to survivorship.

Help, Advice & Support

Our Facebook support group provides a safe place where you can reach out to other people going through the same thing as you and get help, advice and support. 

Head & Neck Cancer Support Charitable Trust

Help us support those with head and neck cancer by making a small donation. We provide items for cancer patients such as patient packs, blenders, dental products and help with travel. In 2023 we are piloting a partnership with Pinc and Steel to provide rehab for head and neck cancer patients after treatment. See below for the aims of our charity.

Our Support Group


We provide peer to peer emotional support online and in person. No one should feel alone. We do this via our private Facebook groups and through face to face meetings. 



We hold meetings in cafes and at Domain Lodge and have arranged informal meetings around the country.  “Providing opportunities to meet” is one of our charitable aims. 



We aim to provide information from reliable sources, sometimes from our own hospitals. Our Facebook group, which is our forum, has played a huge part in educating us all. We learn from each other. 


One of our charitable aims is to supply some of the more difficult to afford products head and neck cancer patients need. Starting in a small way with things like dental products and blenders, we hope to make life easier for families


This is one of our main responsibilities. How can we prevent others from contracting head and neck cancer? How can we make sure others are treated before their cancer is advanced? We work hard on World Head and Neck Cancer Day (July 27) to raise awareness.


We are a support group and have not stated advocacy as one of our charitable aims. However, members of our board have acted as patient representatives at co-patient events run by Auckland Hospital.
