The Children’s Cancer Unit Charity exists solely to support the work of the Children’s Cancer and Haematology Unit at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children and their families.
The Children’s Cancer Unit Charity (formerly known as the Northern Ireland Children’s Cancer Unit Fund) is a registered charity and depends on donations from supporters.
All the funds raised are used to care for children in the province who suffer with all forms of childhood cancer and selected benign haematological conditions. Administration costs are kept to the bare minimum.
Cancer Fund for Children is the leading local charity that provides practical, emotional and financial support to children and young people aged 0 to 24 affected by cancer & their families. We offer free therapeutic short breaks to families from N. Ireland and the Republic of Ireland at Daisy Lodge in Newcastle Co. Down and self-catering breaks at Pine, Birch and Oak Cottages in Coleraine.
Our team of specialists offers support at home, in the community, on the hospital ward, at our short break facility and during residential breaks at our purpose-built Narnia log cabin.
Cancer Fund for Children understands the impact cancer has on the whole family. We support:
Children who have been diagnosed with cancer
The siblings of a child who has been diagnosed with cancer
The parents of a child who has been diagnosed with cancer
A child whose parent has been diagnosed with cancer
