How does Canteen help young people?

Counselling and individual support

Canteen counsellors are specially trained to understand the challenges cancer brings. Young people can share thoughts or feelings that other people in their lives might not be able to relate to.

Peer support and programs

Life can feel pretty lonely when you’re trying to deal with cancer. Through Canteen, young people can meet other young people living with cancer who totally get what they’re going through.

Youth Cancer Services

Youth Cancer Services provide specialist, age-appropriate treatment and support for young cancer patients aged 15-25. This service is supported by federal funding administered by Canteen as well as state and territory government funding.

Health professionals

Health professionals play a vital role in supporting young people living with cancer. Canteen works with health professionals to provide vital information on how best to support young people facing a cancer journey.
