CLIC Sargent NI

2 children and young people in Northern Ireland will hear the shocking news that they have cancer. CLIC Sargent's aim is to reduce the impact of childhood cancer on children, young people and their families. CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly to stop cancer destroying young lives.

We know that for young lives, when the doctor says cancer, normal life stops. Cancer affects every part of life - relationships, confidence, money, school and work. We support the child, young person and their family.

Last year in Northern Ireland we supported 434 children and young people with a caner diagnosis. However as we have said family memebers are also affected so the total number of people we reached in Northern Ireland was around 1,514.

We know everyone is different, so we work hard to help when each child and young person needs it most. We shape the work we do around six core principles:

1) When the DR says cancer

2) Cancer costs

3) There's no place like Home

4) We help them thrive, not survive

5) When a child dies

6) Making change happen

CLIC Sargent receives 'No Governement Funding' and relies purely on donations.
