A haven for children and families to come and chill, let off steam, have fun with others in the same position, or receive counselling, music therapy, attend a support group or receive any other type of support required.
Join our team of amazing fundraisers who help us provide these much needed services to our young people and their families. Without funding and fundraising we couldn’t survive- and that would mean more isolation and loneliness for many families facing the diagnosis or loss of their child through cancer.
Team Jak -where no child, young person or their family should face cancer, related illness or bereavement alone and will get the support they need during their journey and beyond.
