How your money can help

Every day 10 children and young people hear the shocking news they have cancer. CLIC Sargent provides clinical, practical and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life.

How your money can help

Here’s how your donation, large or small, could make a real difference:

A monthly gift...

  • £5 per month over a year could pay for two hours of a CLIC Sargent Nurse’s time, so that they can coordinate clinical and non-clinical care for children with cancer, to maximise the amount of time they can safely spend at home, and ensure that treatments can be given closer to home where possible.
  • £8 per month over a year could help pay for a family to stay for three nights in one of CLIC Sargent’s eight Homes from Home, providing accommodation near to specialist children’s cancer treatment centres, which are often many miles from a family’s own home. Staying in a Home from Home ensures a family can be close to their child during treatment.
  • £10 per month over a year could pay for a CLIC Sargent Play Specialist for a day, so that they can help a child prepare for and cope with treatment, by using models, toys and photos to explain what will happen.

A single gift...

  • £15 could pay for one copy of CLIC Sargent’s DVD to help families where a child or young person has died of cancer to understand and cope with their grief.
  • £25 could help pay for an hour of a CLIC Sargent Nurse’s time, so that they can coordinate clinical and non-clinical care for children with cancer, to maximise the amount of time they can safely spend at home, and ensure that treatments can be given closer to home where possible.
  • £50 could pay for three hours of a CLIC Sargent Play Specialist’s time, so that they can help a child prepare for and cope with treatment, by using models, toys and photos to explain what will happen.
  • £75 could help pay for three hours of a social worker’s time. They will aim to meet children and young people with cancer, and their families, soon after diagnosis and help them to understand and cope with the emotional, practical and financial effects of cancer, through treatment and beyond.
