Parent support

Research shows that when parents cope better with cancer and communicate openly, their children are likely to experience less distress and anxiety. In response, Canteen services now extend to parents by providing practical tools, emotional support and more.
Cancer Hub
Cancer in the family brings immense challenges. Finding support shouldn’t be one of them. That’s why Canteen, Camp Quality and Redkite are working together to deliver Cancer Hub. It’s a one stop shop to help families impacted by cancer more easily access the practical and emotional support they need.
