A young carer is someone under the age of 18 who looks after someone who is ill.
Cancer can lead to extra expenses. By assessing your situation, you can plan ahead to meet your needs.
Our volunteers offer practical and emotional support to people affected by cancer. We want to make sure no one goes through cancer alone.
Come for a chat at one of our information centres. They’re all over the UK and they offer free resources, confidential information and support. Find one near you.
Our Online Community is always open and full of people ready to support you.
