About us

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 it. We're the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need - so no young person faces cancer alone.

We fund specialised nurses, youth workers and hospital units in the NHS, so young people have dedicated staff and facilities to support them throughout treatment and beyond.

By supporting Teenage Cancer Trust, you can help us be there for every young person facing cancer.

Our registered charity details are: 1062559 (England & Wales), SC039757 (Scotland).
