What we do

Hope supports young people aged 5-25 when a loved one has a serious illness such as cancer, Motor Neuron Disease, organ failure etc. We're available from the moment of diagnosis for however long we're needed, whatever the outcome for the patient. Our online support service is available across the UK and offers one-to-one support as well as a moderated peer support community, giving young people the chance to offload their worries and look at positive coping strategies.
