CancerCare is a charity dedicated to helping families affected by cancer living in North Lancashire and South Cumbria.
The charity’s Children and Young People’s Service offers professional one-to-one counselling to children aged 3-18 who are bereaved or affected by cancer.
Their centre provides a space for children and young people to express their feelings and work through their emotions through play therapy and craft activities. As well as counselling, CancerCare also provides creative support groups, massage and other therapy services to anyone affected by cancer, including relatives, carers and those bereaved.
Global’s Make Some Noise is proud to support the charity’s ‘Helping Young People Through Cancer and Loss’ project which provides counselling sessions for young people – including out in community locations so that transport is no barrier to getting help.
The project also includes a Summer Programme of activities, supported by a youth worker and a therapist, to bring together young people who need help but lack the confidence to access counselling.
With your help, we can support projects like this one and many more across the UK.
