We have proudly launched a capital appeal to open the UK mainland’s first purpose-built Retreat, specifically for 13-24 year olds who have battled or are battling, cancer.
The Retreat will be a home with a heart, where the young people can meet others their age, in a similar situation, and gain strength from sharing experiences with others.
The short-term accommodation will help us reach out to those who live too far away to attend one of our day workshops or activities.
Detailed below are our events for Teens, Volunteers, Fundraising and Challenges.
Volunteering with Teens Unite has changed my personality and outlook on life. When I hear all the amazing things the teens say about Teens Unite, I can tell they mean every word.Nathan, 23, Volunteer
Teens Unite isn't just a charity to me, it was the beginning of restarting my life.Jess, 22, Teen, Acute Myeloid Leukaemia
When Elliot started receiving the support of Teens Unite, I could see a change in him straightaway. His outlook on life was becoming positive again and I gained strength from seeing my little boy accepting what had happened and starting to move forward.David, Parent to Elliot, 18, Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma
I needed help and that's where Teens Unite came in. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and the reason I met Teens Unite was to save my life.Harry, 20, Teen, Testicular Cancer
With Teens Unite, I finally realised that I could climb out of this massive hole that I had been digging because I wasn't alone anymore.Leanne, 21, Teen, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia
If it wasn't for Teens Unite, I wouldn't be where I am now. They have been really supportive and given me the strength to push myself and not give up.Derry, 20, Teen, Brain Tumour
My wife inspired me to volunteer following her fight against cancer. I wanted to help others carry on living their lives the way she did. And that's exactly what Teens Unite does.John, 64, Volunteer
