As the Co Founder, Teens Unite is my dream and my passion and I am always looking for ways to support more young people. They are at the very heart of what we do and why Teens Unite exists.
I develop relationships with supporters who can help us to achieve our vision of giving all young people, aged 13-24 with a cancer diagnosis, the opportunity to meet with others, gain strength from each other and rebuild their lives.
I love spending time with the young people we support and helping them to feel and stay positive. Seeing them develop life-long friendships, challenge themselves, laugh and have fun reminds me why I founded Teens Unite and why we strive every day to make a difference to even more young people across the UK.
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.
