More than 70 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every week in the UK.
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it can be a frightening experience for the whole family. Treatment normally starts immediately, is often given many miles from home and can last for several years.
At Children with Cancer UK, we fund innovative welfare projects to provide better care and practical support for young cancer patients and their families.

Previously funded projects
Over the years, we have supported a wide variety of projects providing support and care to children and families going through treatment for cancer.
We supported two major capital projects: the Paul O’Gorman Patient Hotel and the redevelopment and expansion of their oncology and haematology facilities.
We worked with CLIC Sargent to establish Paul's House in London, a 'home from home' for the families of children being treated at University College London Hospital.
We've been working the Paul O’Gorman Lifeline to help children in eastern Europe and central Asia.
