We currently fund Family Support Networks in London, Manchester and Birmingham, and we’re working on improving and developing more over the next few years. We know how important is that all 13-24 year olds diagnosed with cancer are fully supported throughout treatment and beyond, and this includes providing access to support and help for all their loved ones too.
Additionally our expert staff currently provides family support to the friends and family of young people with cancer in a number of local areas through:
- family fun days where families can meet others in the same area
- events on the units where families can talk about difficult issues in a supportive environment
- one-to-one sessions with experienced staff who can support the family through particularly difficult times.
Please contact your local Service Development Manager [link] if you have any queries or to find out about services in your area.
