Help us knock down barriers
We support young people with cancer and their families. We know there are many financial, social and educational barriers preventing them from living life to the full.
CLIC Sargent’s Support Workers work tirelessly to knock down these barriers. They will work on a one to one basis with young people with cancer aged 16-24 to support them through their treatment. They can:
- Give young people emotional support to cope with body confidence issues
- Put them in touch with other young people with cancer so that they feel less isolated
- Help them access the financial support they need
- Arrange for them to stay for free at one of CLIC Sargent’s nine Homes from Home, minutes away from the hospital where they are being treated
- Speak to teachers and tutors to help them keep up with their education
Are you in?
Vote for the ‘No Barriers’ campaign in the Capita staff vote and help CLIC Sargent knock down the barriers standing in the way for many young people with cancer.
If you know someone who works for Capita, please ask them to consider CLIC Sargent in their staff vote.
CLIC Sargent Support Workers can help young people with cancer like Jack, aged 20.
Why do we need your help?
CLIC Sargent currently can’t support all of the young people who need our help. We just don’t have enough funds to support all of them. This means that right now all over the UK there are still lots of young people battling against all those barriers without our help.
How can you help?
Capita staff can help CLIC Sargent support an extra 250 young people who are currently not receiving our vital support. Every penny raised by Capita staff will go directly towards supporting young people and reducing barriers preventing young people with cancer from living life to the full.
