Canteen Connect is a secure online community that is specifically designed for young people impacted by cancer aged 12-25. This community provides support for young people who are dealing with a family member’s cancer or their own diagnosis.
Young people can find discussions and connect with people who have similar cancer experiences to their own through discussion forums and private conversations. Canteen Connect also provides a list of online and in person events that give young people time out from the daily pressures of cancer, as well as the opportunity to meet other young people and learn new ways to cope with cancer.
Through Canteen Connect, young people can also access free Canteen counselling with a counsellor who understands.
When cancer crashes into a young person’s world, Canteen is in their corner with whatever support they need. We provide individually tailored support to young people aged 12-25 and their parents.
