Cancer Support Specialist - Community Based

Children and young people react to a cancer diagnosis in different ways, regardless of age, gender, social background or family makeup. Our Cancer Support Specialists provide informal emotional, social and therapeutic support to children and young people navigating this experience, meeting them where they are.

Our community-based Specialists deliver therapeutic support in the family home or other agreed venue, helping children and young people connect, speak openly and develop key skills so they feel better equipped to cope with the impact of cancer.

These roles are funded in partnership with The Katie Nugent Fund at Children’s Health Foundation.
