Cancer shouldn't hold you back or define who you are and what you can do. By joining our activities and short breaks, you'll be able to:
We'll help you to rebuild your life or at the very least, live with your diagnosis in the best possible way.
Our FREE activities take place face-to-face and digitally, so no matter where you live, whether you're at home or in hospital, you can benefit from our support.
There's no limit to how many you can attend, and our activities are tailored to suit all needs, interests and abilities. There's lots to look forward to every week and these are just some of the activities we run regularly:
If you’re aged 18 or over, you won’t want to miss our annual short breaks!
In addition to the regular activities we run, we bring around 20 young people together each summer for an unforgettable stay away from home. It's one of the highlights of our year!
You’ll get to take part in different activities each day and on the last night you’ll celebrate your time together with a formal dinner. The activities are varied to suit everyones interests and abilities and you’ll leave having made so many memories, as well as new friends. You’ll then have the opportunity to join our reunion break in the Spring, which brings you back together with the friends you’ve made.
Take a look at what we get up to!
Our Discover You event is for you and your family. It's about achieving your aspirations in life, whether they are personal or professional goals. You'll hear from inspirational speakers throughout the day, who will inspire you with their own life stories and the hurdles they've had to overcome.
We help to build your self-confidence, help you feel motivated, and improve your self-esteem. We want you to know that your chances of success haven't been impacted by the time you've had to take out of education or work.
To support you, we have partnered with the team at New Skills Academy, an online education provider, who are offering access to any of their courses to Teens, free of charge. Whether you are looking for something academic, thinking about your first job, or wanting to do something positive while you think about longer term options, there'll be something for you.
Take a look, here, and then if you find something you're interested in, give us a call on 01992 440091, and we will talk you through the next steps.
Detailed below are our events for Teens, Volunteers, Fundraising and Challenges.
Volunteering with Teens Unite has changed my personality and outlook on life. When I hear all the amazing things the teens say about Teens Unite, I can tell they mean every word.
Teens Unite isn't just a charity to me, it was the beginning of restarting my life.
When Elliot started receiving the support of Teens Unite, I could see a change in him straightaway. His outlook on life was becoming positive again and I gained strength from seeing my little boy accepting what had happened and starting to move forward.
I needed help and that's where Teens Unite came in. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and the reason I met Teens Unite was to save my life.
With Teens Unite, I finally realised that I could climb out of this massive hole that I had been digging because I wasn't alone anymore.
If it wasn't for Teens Unite, I wouldn't be where I am now. They have been really supportive and given me the strength to push myself and not give up.
