The FORCE family service supports every generation affected by a cancer diagnosis.

Children and young people need special care and support when someone close to them has cancer.

Here at FORCE we recognise how important it is to offer a dedicated service for those youngsters at such a difficult time in their lives. We have oncology support specialists with particular expertise in working with those young people.

The FORCE Cancer Support Centre provides a support group for children aged between six and 13 who have a close family member or friend affected by cancer.

These groups offer the opportunity for children and young people to meet others in the same situation, play some games, eat some biscuits and do some talking. We also organise excursions for activities like caving and sailing.

There’s a link below to an amazing and very moving film, made by the FORCE Cancer Charity’s Children and Young People’s Group in conjunction with Animation Therapy Ltd. It shows just how important this service can be. We encourage you to watch it now.
