Practical help and support groups

MattDotCom provides laptops and other equipment for educational purposes, to enable teenagers to continue with their education, stay in touch with their family and peers and have an element of distraction whilst undergoing treatment. The service is available to all teenagers with cancer in our catchment area and who are 12 to 19 years old inclusive. (However, MattDotCom would try to help a teenager beyond 19 years old if they were still in full time education or studying at the Open University, if they were diagnosed before 19 years old).

An application for a laptop or home system must be made by the teenager’s nurse, social worker, occupational therapist or teacher. All children’s wards and hospital social work departments in our current catchment area have been sent application forms and information sheets. For more information, please see the Application Information and Useful Information pages on our website.
