About CanTeen

We get it. Just when life should be full of possibilities, cancer crashes into a young person's world and shatters everything.

We help young people cope with cancer in their family. Through CanTeen, they learn to explore and deal with their feelings about cancer, connect with other young people in the same boat and if they've been diagnosed themselves, we provide specialist, youth-specific treatment teams.

By feeling understood and supported, young people develop resilience and can rebuild the foundations that crumbled beneath them when cancer turned their life upside down.

No matter which role you are in, working for CanTeen is how you can be the difference.
