Known as the TYA team, we work with young people aged 16-24 years across the South West of England who have been diagnosed with cancer. This is to ensure that all young people are able, whenever possible and appropriate, to access treatment locally. Our aim is to provide specialist age- appropriate care and psychological, emotional, financial, practical, educational and social support to young people with cancer, their family and friends.

Being diagnosed with cancer and facing treatment can be one of the scariest and hardest times of their life. We are here to help you and to try and make things easier for you. We see everyone as an individual and not just a diagnosis. Our dedicated team of specialists have expert knowledge in looking after young people with different types of cancer, leukaemia and brain tumours - from the common, to the very rare.
