Teenage Cancer Trust Youth Support Coordinator

We're here for you

Having cancer can be an isolating experience, where you miss out on school, seeing friends and other normal stuff. Youth Support Coordinators are there to support you and make the hospital ward a less scary place, providing an informal and relaxed atmosphere and keeping everyone as active as possible.

They make sure there are plenty of chances to socialise and stay connected with other people your age. They’ll arrange activities and give practical help about specific issues, like altered appearance and body image. All this support makes huge difference to life with cancer.
