I’m hugely passionate about ensuring no young person faces cancer alone and I feel incredibly privileged to work as part of the Teens Team and in the role I do. I see the huge value of peer to peer support and being around others who just get it.
As the Teens Service Manager it is my responsibility to inform and develop strong relationships with hospital teams and other organisations to ensure as many young people know about and are able to access the support Teens Unite offers.
Another important part of my role is to make sure once a young person has taken that leap of faith and signed up, they have the best experience with us and feel part of the Teens Unite family because once they do it is truly magical.
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.
