Children with Cancer UK
The strapline for Children with Cancer UK is ‘fighting the UK’s biggest child killer’. Sadly cancer is still the most common medical cause of death beyond infancy in children and young people in the UK. When Children with Cancer UK refers to a ‘child’ we use the definitions from the Office of National Statistics - meaning children aged from 1 to 15.


  • Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC). The AMRC sets minimum standards of good practice to which member charities must adhere in their grant-making, including policies on peer review.
  • National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI): NCRI is a UK-wide partnership between the government, charity and industry. It promotes co-operation amongst its member organisations for the benefit of patients, the public and the scientific community.
