About Us

We aim to offer all young people the support that they need to reach the important goals in their lives during and after a diagnosis of cancer and its treatment.

 

Social activities take place approximately every 6 weeks. This is an opportunity to meet other young people who have experience of cancer. We will work closely with any other hospitals and professionals involved with the young person. We have TYA friendly rooms on Yeo, Yarty and Bramble wards.

 

We will listen and value young people's input into how we can improve services and environments.
