Young Lives vs Cancer

Young Lives vs Cancer is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. We provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. We are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.

We provide clinical, practical and emotional support to children and young people with cancer, and their families

We give financial support including grants and benefits information to children and young people with cancer to help deal with the financial impact of cancer

We provide free ‘Home from Home’ accommodation close to specialist hospitals, so that families can be close to their children during treatment

We offer free holidays and short breaks so that families can spend time together, with the support of our care professionals, away from the everyday challenges of childhood cancer

We provide children, young people and families with a wide range of valuable information on childhood cancer and its impact

We campaign and influence others to raise awareness of the needs of children and young people with cancer and to improve the support they receive.
