A grant of £214,345 over three years for CLIC Sargent’s ‘Thrive, not just survive’ programme in Yorkshire. The grant will ensure that the CLIC Sargent care teams are on hand to support young cancer patients emotionally, building their resilience so they can continue to learn, regain their confidence and self-belief and be inspired to think beyond cancer. CLIC Sargent’s social care teams in Sheffield and Leeds work with schools helping students keep in touch with friends, organising work at home or helping schools prepare for when the child goes back to school. This is intended to minimise the disruption cancer has on their education, social life and future prospect.
