Teens Unite Fighting Cancer

We run regular workshops and activities that are tailored to suit the capabilities, needs and interests of the young people we support. Teens Unite provides them with the opportunity to meet others in similar situations and build vital peer support networks, and re-build confidence and self-esteem. We prevent isolation and loneliness by introducing a sense of togetherness through peer-to-peer interaction and support making, what can be, a long, tiring battle easier.
