supporting someone with cancer


supporting someone with cancer


If you're supporting someone under 25 with cancer, we’re here to help.


We know cancer can be stressful, expensive and disruptive. These challenges can affect parents and carers, brothers and sisters, partners, friends, and others supporting a young person through cancer. That's why we offer cancer support to young people as well as those close to them, through treatment and beyond.

information about cancer

We’ve been working with children, teenagers and young adults with cancer, as well as their family and friends, for over 30 years. This information is based on what they've told us:

We’ve also put together links to other resources and organisations that can help.


This information isn’t meant to be medical advice. We’re not doctors or medical experts, but we are here to help with the practical and emotional challenges of cancer.

Our support team will listen and respond to you respectfully. Whether you need a quick answer to a question or more in-depth support, we'll do everything we can to help.
