Trusts & foundations

We are fortunate to benefit from the support of a number of trusts and foundations. We are indebted to them for their help in funding our vital work.

What started as a small memorial charity in 1988 has become major force in paediatric oncology – driving childhood leukaemia survival rates up to over 80%.

Buildling on this success, we have evolved into Children with Cancer UK.

We fund life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer, and work to protect young lives through essential welfare and campaigining programmes.

How you can help

In the last three years, we have committed almost £10 million to research childhood cancers, including the development of research facilities.

Improving treatments: We are working to develop treatments which are more effective and less punishing, reducing the risk of the side-effects associated with current treatments.

Investigating the causes: We are working hard to improve our understanding of the causes of childhood cancer, towards the day when we will be able to take informed, preventive action.

Research facilities: By providing capital funding for the improvement of research facilities, we help scientists make the best possible progress in their work.
