What We Do

 

Our mission statement:

Teens Unite Fighting Cancer is dedicated to improving the lives of young people aged 13-24, with cancer and other life limiting illnesses.

The charity runs regular days out such as concerts, football matches, art and beauty workshops. Teens Unite provides ongoing long term support for teens whether they are undergoing treatment or in remission.

The teenagers that we support say that being a member of Teens Unite benefits them in numerous ways; many have reported improved hope and confidence as a result of the personal, teen-specific, support. Others have said that the opportunity to meet others in similar situations has resulted in lifelong friendships being formed.

Alongside our regular fun days out, Teens Unite also provides many opportunities for teens to gain valuable life and career skills. From internships, to fundraising schemes, to teen organised and run events…we are here to support teens throughout their journey and to help get them to have the confidence to go forward and achieve their goals.

Teens Unite’s main aim is to get teens together as often as possible in a fun-filled environment; giving them the chance to talk to each other and gain strength from realising that they are not alone in their battle.

Teens Unite is unique in providing the ongoing personal support that has been proven to have a major impact on treatment and recovery for this age group.

“I have been privileged to witness many teens grow in confidence and strength over the time they have been involved with the charity. When so many of them attribute this improved self esteem to their involvement with Teens Unite, we know that as a charity we need to welcome as many teens into the Teens Unite family as we possibly can”.
