Cancer and its treatment often disrupt family life and normal routines. As a result, your childcare needs may change and you may need more support to look after your children.
This information looks at different childcare options when a parent or carer has cancer. It also includes information about the support that’s available to help you look after your children. We also have information on talking to your children when you have cancer.
We hope this information answers your questions. If you have any further questions, you can ask your doctor, nurse or social worker.
