If you’re a family affected by childhood cancer, we’re here to help you.

We know how it feels to hear the words ‘your child has cancer’. We’ve lived the shock, sadness and fear that can travel with families on their journeys. We’re here to bring support, comfort and hope to an often difficult journey. In the last 35 years, we have spent:

– £10 million on family accommodation
– £3 million on financial supports grants
– £2.5 million on medical equipment
– £3 million on support services

Wellbeing and support


We know how scary a childhood cancer diagnosis can be – but you don’t have to face it alone. We work in partnership with Spread a Smile to help improve the wellbeing of seriously ill and hospitalised children and also the Beads of Courage UK Oncology Programme to support families and help them navigate life through treatment and beyond.
