The Charity

White House Cancer Support was founded in 1984 by Elizabeth Harris, a cancer patient looking for support and information to tackle her recent diagnosis.

Starting as a small group that met in Elizabeth's home, Cancer Support grew, providing an increasing range of services to local people affected by cancer.

Over the years Cancer Support developed so successfully that in 1995 it moved to its own premises at The White House, 10 Ednam Road, Dudley.

Registered Company

In 2011 the Trustees of Cancer Support decided that the charity should become a Registered Company, and the membership voted to accept this decision at a Special General Meeting. From 1 November 2011 Cancer Support became White House Cancer Support Limited.

The changes in no way affect the services and support we provide for cancer patients and those who care about them. These changes are mainly to do with how the charity is governed and protect the future of the organisation, particularly its main asset, The White House. In the unlikely event of the charity suffering financial problems, the house will be protected and preserved for the benefit of cancer patients.

Registered members of White House Cancer Support automatically become Associate Members, and this will entitle them to use all of the services that we provide.

However, anyone wishing to become more involved in determining how the charity is run can become a Full Member. If you would like further information, or an application form for Full Membership, please ring 01384 231232 or email
