Apply to join our new Youth Engagement Groups

Would you like to have your say on the services Cancer Fund for Children provide, help us to make decisions, raise awareness or create change on issues about cancer and help other young people living with cancer?

You can achieve all this whilst meeting new people, working as part of a group, gaining new opportunities, having fun, and learning new skills by applying to become a member of one of our new Youth Gngagement Groups.

Our youth engagement groups  are one of the ways we aim “to ensure that the voice of children and young people is at the heart of our organisation, and young people are an active voice in championing change across cancer services.”

They are for young people who have been supported by Cancer Fund for Children in recent years and are split into two separate age groups (8-11 and 12-17), but there will be some opportunities for both groups to meet and work together.


They will be made up of young people from across our service programmes

  • young people who had/have a cancer diagnosis
  • siblings of young people with cancer
  • young people whose parent/guardian have cancer
  • young people who have been bereaved

Membership of the Youth Engagement Groups will be from September 2022-July 2024.

Applications close: Wednesday 24th August 2022 at 6pm
