We’re a national charity based in Bournemouth

Meet people like you! Youth Cancer Trust provides support and free activity holidays for young people (aged 14 to 30) diagnosed and living with cancer or any malignant disease, from anywhere in the UK and the Irish Republic, or who are patients of any UK hospital.

Holidays are also available for young people who have been in remission for up to five years or who are living with the late effects of having had cancer as a teenager or young adult. If you have any queries about our services, please telephone 01202 763591.

Groups of 8 are made up of similar ages and groups can also be made up of friends you made in hospital. We are open all year round and are based at Tracy Ann House in Bournemouth, Dorset.
