The first retreat in England for teenagers and young adults who have been diagnosed with cancer.
Our long-standing ambition is to open a retreat where young people can receive the emotional, social, and physical support they need following a cancer diagnosis.
The facility will enable young people aged 13-24, to visit for day activities along wiith short, three-night residential stays, in a fully staffed environment. They will spend time with others their age in a similar situation, whilst learning new skills and positively challenging themselves through the different activities we organise.
It will be known as 'The House of Teens Unite', and we are currently in the process of finding a location, where we can open the retreat.
For the past 14 years, we have been supporting young people who are overcoming cancer and the lasting impact it has on their mental, emotional and physical health, through our activities and stays away from home. However, without a base to facilitate our activities and residential stays, we have reached our capacity for the support we can provide. The House of Teens Unite will enable us to offer greater opportunities to more young people at a time when they need us most, enabling them to continue living their years as a young adult in the best possible way.
