Walnut 2

About this service

METRO Walnut is a peer support group for LGBTQ people with prostate cancer. We meet twice a month, on the 1st Saturday of the month online and then on the 3rd Saturday of the month face-to-face, at our new venue in New Cross southeast London, both are from 2pm to 4pm. Please check for seasonal changes due to bank holidays.

It's a safe and confidential space for you and your partner(s) to talk about what's going on in your life. You can ask questions, share your experiences and get support from people who are also dealing with prostate cancer.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Our once monthly online meetings have moved to Zoom and will continue meet into the future. Our once monthly face-to-face meetings restarted from August 2021. We look forward to resuming face to face services, but will review them as appropriate.

Who can use this service
