Teenage Cancer Trust

Make a difference

Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words “you have cancer”. They will each need specialised nursing care and support to get them through it.

We’re the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need – so no young person faces cancer alone. Teenage Cancer Trust offers unique care and support, designed for and with young people. We fund specialised nurses, youth workers and hospital units in the NHS, so young people have dedicated staff and facilities to support them throughout treatment. We run events for young people with cancer to help them regain independence and meet other young people going through something similar. And we provide easy-to-understand information about every aspect of living with cancer as a young person. Care and support for every young person facing cancer. We’ve got your back.

Help and support

Whatever you’re going through right now, you’re not alone. We support young people through our units in NHS hospitals, staffed by specialised nurses and youth workers, as well as our events for young people around the UK and online community.
