Our information for patients and families

We support children and young people with cancer and their families in a variety of different ways.  


Written by experts, our comprehensive quality-assured range of publications helps patients and their families understand their diagnosis, treatment and what to expect now and in the future.

Our free quarterly magazine, Contact, offers help, support and information for families of children, teenagers and young adults with cancer. You can also search Contact's archive for articles from parents and families who have gone through the same experience and yourself.

Family information days

We also organise informative events for parents and families each year. Since 2014, we have (in partnership with another charity called Bethany's Wish) organised the UK Childhood Cancer Conference. This hugely successful event brings together parents, researchers, healthcare professionals and charities to discuss the latest research into childhood cancer and talk about the issues which affect parents.  

CCLG information film library

Over the last few years, our family information days have all been filmed and added online. They cover a whole range of topics from diagnosis to the latest research. Expert films on types of childhood cancer and treatment can also be viewed.
