No young person should have to go through cancer alone. With your help, we can make that vision a reality.

Every year, another 23,000 young people have to face the challenge of their own or a family member’s cancer. Cancer changes everything. We get it. Canteen helps young people find the emotional strength they need to deal with cancer.

Canteen is Australia's leading youth cancer charity providing evidence-based support to young people and families impacted by cancer. When cancer crashes into a young person’s family, we're here to help.

Canteen provides a wide range of free support services, including:

  • the chance to connect with other young people in similar situations through events and programs
  • specialist counselling and individual support
  • 24/7 online communities for young people and parents
  • access to information and resources
  • specialist support services for young cancer patients

Important Note

Dry July is a fundraising campaign aimed at challenging social drinkers to change their habits for a month and make some healthy lifestyle changes.
