Family Support / Family Support
With most of our team at CCLASP having been personally affected by childhood cancer, we can provide parents with readily-available support and information that’s reliable and from people that understand first-hand the emotional turmoil of a child facing such a frightening and confusing illness. This enables a level of support and understanding that’s impossible without first-hand experience and is what makes us so trusted amongst the families we care for.
CCLASP are always available to meet with families soon after diagnosis to answer questions that you and your child may have, and with over twenty years experience as a charity we are used to explaining what is happening and what you can expect during treatment in a way that is easy for you and your family to understand. We also try to help wherever possible with practical concerns and can offer holidays and distraction therapy for your child to make treatment a little more bearable.
We have spent many years building up relationships with other like-minded charities so as to access much needed resources for a sick child and their families. We can let you know about other organisations that may be able to help you and put you in touch with other sources of support.
