I am responsible for developing and implementing strategic relationship with Trusts & Foundations, organisations, community groups and businesses whose values and visions are aligned with ours and whose ambition and enthusiasm to help us support teenagers and young adults fighting cancer matches our own. The absolute privilege of working here is getting to know the young people we support and spend time with them, these relationships are invaluable in helping us to tell our story and to get the essential emotional connections that are needed.
Bravery and inspiration are not words that I would use lightly, but they are words that I use regularly working for Teens Unite. The bravery of the teens in the face of their diagnosis and the inspiration that they give each other are, in themselves, inspirational.
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.
