Charity information


34 young adults in their 20s and 30s are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. Trekstock
delivers practical and social support programmes tailored to their needs, to give them a better
chance of living well through and beyond cancer.

Through exercise support, practical advice and an active online and offline community, our
programmes tackle social isolation, improve quality of life and provide young adults with the
tools they need to get moving again after cancer puts their life on hold.
