Cancer and its treatment often disrupt family life and normal routines. Your childcare needs may change, and you might 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 details about the support available to help you look after your children.
If you have any more questions, you can talk to your cancer nurse or social worker. You can also call the Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 00 00.
