Support our work

  • Youth Support Coordinator


We also fund a national Lead Nurse for Scotland and a TYA Multi-disciplinary Team co-ordinator in partnership with the Managed Service Network (MSN) for Children and Young People with Cancer.

They ensure the best possible quality care is given so that the young person is treated as a young person first and cancer patient second.
