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.

To protect our beneficiaries and staff, the house and Trust is currently closed for holidays and visitors until 2022. If you would like to book a holiday for 2022, please email us or complete our online application form.

Please don’t feel alone – Youth Cancer Trust is running a secure online group for young cancer patients and those with late effects from having had cancer as a young person. If you would like to join the group, please complete our online form or email us

The online group offers support, fun activities such as cookery and quizzes, peers who understand, therapeutic support and activities to help promote wellbeing, such as Yoga and meditation. 

Holidays (running again in 2022) 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.
