About Hope

About Hope

We’re a registered UK charity set up in 2009. We support young people when a close family member is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, such as cancer or even Covid-19.

Being diagnosed with a life-threatening illness is the toughest thing many of us will ever have to face.

Not just for the patient but for everyone around them. Younger family members can find the uncertainty particularly hard to deal with – but we’re here to help them.

We’re here for young people aged 11-25 across the UK right from the point of diagnosis and for however long we’re needed, and also offer a face-to-face service for those aged 5-25 in Herefordshire. We’re a group of highly trained, sensitive professionals and we will do everything we can to support children who need us.

Hope Support Services has been rewarded for its work with young people by these organizations

For young people by young people

Our organization is both focused on young people and made of young people. They each have personal experience of family crisis and are able to offer excellent support and guidance for how we operate.

We’ve put together an infographic that shows the kinds of young people who turn to us for help, what their needs are and how we support them. It’s a great overview of our work.
