Whether you’re levelling-up on the latest game, busting out burpees in a live workout, or taking on the competition in a quiz, launch the ultimate charity live stream this October and help us be there for every young person with cancer in the UK.
How does it work?
- Sign up and create a fundraising page
- Decide what and when you are going to livestream and let your community know
- Share your fundraising page before, during and after your livestream
Playing games with others on the unit gave me a bit of normality…

We know streaming helps many young people connect during cancer.
By fundraising with your streaming community, you’ll be helping young people get the vital support they need.
Why Stream and Support Teenage Cancer Trust?
More than 3,000 young people were diagnosed with cancer during the pandemic.
£200 could go towards activities run by Youth Support Coordinators, who’ve found amazingly creative ways to move events and groups online since the pandemic began bringing young people together virtually to support each other.
Gaming is a good distraction for young people. And it shows their friends that they are still there, and still them.
- Conor, Teenage Cancer Trust Youth Support Coordinator at the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People
So whichever community you’re a part of, stream this October and help us be there through the toughest of times for young people with cancer.
When young people are relaxed, they open up. Not making eye contact helps. I wouldn’t have been able to get to some topics without gaming.
- Gemma, Teenage Cancer Trust Youth Support Coordinator at The Freeman Hospital
We create world class cancer services for young people in the UK, providing life-changing care and support so young people don't have to face cancer alone.
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 the toughest times they may have faced.
We're the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need. So you know we're the real deal, this is our registered charity details: 1062559 (England & Wales), SC039757 (Scotland).
