Education and Career Service
A survey conducted by Canteen found that less than half of the young cancer patients surveyed have high confidence of achieving their education goals and less than a third of the young cancer patients have high confidence of achieving their employment goals. Canteen aims to change this by providing young cancer patients with support, through their Education and Career Service (ECS).
Canteen’s Education and Career Service (ECS) helps young people aged 15-25 stay connected to study or work both during and after their cancer treatment. The service covers vocational goals and values, followed by individualised support plans to help young people achieve their goals. ECS is run one-to-one and can be conducted in person, over the phone or by video conference.
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.
