Take part in research and evaluation

Take part in research and evaluation

Our research team regularly conducts confidential surveys and evaluations with the families who access our services. Sometimes they are asked by colleagues in the cancer research sector to share their call for participants in studies or projects.

External studies seeking participants

If you have had cancer and were aged 0-18 at the time, or have cared for a child or sibling with cancer, you might be interested in taking part in a research study. Your participation could help improve support for others in the future.
