Children and young people can be affected by cancer in many ways.

FACT offers a range of support sessions and social opportunities for children, young people and families.

Support ranges from social outings, group sessions and counselling, through to bespoke one to one provision. Children and young people can be affected by cancer in many ways. FACT not only provide services for children diagnosed with cancer, but also to children where a family member or friend has been diagnosed. FACT also offers a specialist children's bereavement preparation and support service.

For example, our FACT Family Day runs on the first Saturday of every month.  The group consists of families who have been affected by cancer, whether it be parents or children. The group meet and enjoy a programme of different activities and outings each month.  It gives children the opportunity to meet others in similar situations.  It is also a great way for parents, guardians and carers to meet, help each other and talk to others in similar circumstances to themselves.
