Thrive Not Just Survive Grant

Cancer puts young people's lives on hold. Together with our partner Societe Generale we've launched our 'Thrive Not Just Survive' grant for the second year, so young cancer patients can get their education and work ambitions back on track.

The grant of up to £5,000 is designed for 14 – 24 year olds, and can cover anything from extra tuition, course fees, tools for an apprenticeship to materials for a course such as video equipment. Have a clear ambition for your next step in your education or career? Consider applying!
