Currently all of the care and support for young people with cancer, and the education and awareness we provide costs just over £9 million per year. But right now, for every young person we currently reach, there’s another we can’t. We’re working hard with our incredible supporters to make sure we reach every young person with cancer who needs us.

If you are worried about your health, try not to keep it to yourself – talking to friends and family can really help. So can talking to a professional – like your own doctor or a nurse at your school, university or a walk-in centre. For more information, please visit the Get Help section of our website.
Whilst we do work very closely with a range of high profile people, this is purely on an ambassadorial level on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust. Unfortunately we are unable to pass on individual requests from members of the general public.
Of every £1 donated to Teenage Cancer Trust, 77p is spent on supporting young people with cancer.
We work out this figure in the same way as other major charities in the UK so that our supporters can compare us with other organisations. We also use our financial results for the last three years which ensures that significant events in any single year do not have a distorting effect. This figure excludes trading income and expenditure associated with challenge events, registration fees and tickets for our shows at the Royal Albert Hall because these trading activities represent a different type of fundraising and if they are included they do not properly represent the efficiency of every £1 donated.
Unfortunately we are unable to organise visits to units in response to individual requests because of health and safety reasons and to avoid causing disruption to patients.

Teenage Cancer Trust is primarily a service delivery organization, developing ways of providing the best possible care and professional support for young people with cancer. We allocate a small percentage of our funds to research projects aimed at improving care but do not fund any animal testing. Read the research area of our site for more information.
