Around 4,500 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK. Our aims are to determine the causes, find cures and provide care for children with cancer. Our small team is united by a common goal – to save and improve young lives.
We receive no government funding and rely exclusively on the generosity of our supporters.
For over 30 years, we’ve been funding lifesaving childhood cancer research and supporting children with cancer and their families. With your help we’ve raised over £250 million, which has funded over 200 research projects and many other vital services for young cancer patients.
We won’t stop until every child survives.Our impact and success
Only around 2% of cancer funding in the UK* is spent on research that is fully dedicated to childhood and young adult cancer. This is why your support is so important. By making a donation or setting up a direct debit today, you could help fund vital life-saving research into childhood cancers. And because of your generosity, children like Nieve, pictured above, will get to ring the end of treatment bell.Donate now
Hi everyone! My name is Ellie. When I was 14 I was diagnosed with a cancer type called alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. To make something good out of a bad situation I decided to vlog my cancer journey.
This Christmas I’m supporting Children with Cancer UK. Together we’re helping to raise awareness and raise money to help other children with cancer.Find out more about Ellie's story
