Summary

Teens Unite support young people aged between 13 and 24 with cancer; from the moment of diagnosis, through treatment and beyond remission. We understand that cancer doesn't stop when the treatment stops. Many young people have to take time out of education or employment to undergo treatment, and our Positive Steps Programme provides the young people with key skills and the motivation to return to education or employment and look to a life beyond cancer.

Challenge

Many of the young people we support have taken time out of education or employment to undergo treatment and can be left with few qualifications, or a lack of work experience. These factors can contribute to a lack of confidence, motivation and self-esteem, as they feel their life chances have been taken away.

Solution

The Positive Steps programme is a series of workshops designed to help the young people to return to education or employment and prepare for independent living. Providing them with the skills, experience and most importantly, the confidence to plan for a future beyond cancer.

Long-Term Impact

Over 2,400 teens and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK. The good news is that 84% survive for five years or more and preparing for a return to education or employment is an excellent way of enhancing well-being and increasing their chances of a successful future. We will give 36 young people with cancer the motivation, skills and confidence to return to education or employment, enabling them to plan for a successful future and increase their well-being.
