We also provide outreach services to homes and hospitals for children and families unable to visit a Den, and visit schools to support young people siblings classmates and teachers and staff during their journey and sadly for bereavement support.

Lifts to appointments & Jak’s Den

If you are struggling to get to an appointment or would like company for it, or come to Jak’s Den, we will, where at all possible, endeavour to come with you or arrange a lift (this may not always be possible but we will try our best).

Help with shopping, house cleaning, ironing & garden

We know how hard it can be to complete simple tasks when caring for your child with cancer. Our volunteers are on hand to help with any job you are finding hard to get around to. Just contact us and we will do our best to help.

Birthday & Christmas presents

All of our registered children and siblings receive a card on their birthday and a gift at Christmas up to the age of 25. If you are interested, and are not registered, please contact us for an online form.

Jak’s Sacks & Vouchers on diagnosis, relapse & occasions

If you are newly registered you will receive a Jak’s sack for your warrior child and Sibling Sacks for any siblings, and if your warrior sadly relapses or there are other occasions we often send hampers and gifts to cheer you all up.

Tutoring and Homework as required

Team Jak recognise how difficult it is to keep up with schoolwork when your child is ill, both for your warrior and siblings. We are fortunate to have teachers on our staff and also links with others who are willing to help support your child and their school if required.
