Banyards’ supporting – Young Cancer Patient Travel Fund

As key supporters of ‘Young Lives vs Cancer’, we wanted to share with you some information about their new Travel Costs campaign.

The main aim is to raise awareness and get people to sign the petition calling on the government to create a ‘Young Cancer Patient Travel Fund’ to help provide better financial support to help with the cost of children and young people travelling to their cancer treatment.


Getting to cancer treatment for children and young people costs a lot!

Young cancer patient care is usually provided at specialist centres, often far from home. Many are travelling long distances, several times a week, and sometimes this can last for years.

As well as it being physically and emotionally draining, it comes at a large financial cost. This is leaving children and young people with cancer and their families #RunningOnEmpty. Young Lives Vs Cancer and Banyards’ believe all they should be focused on, is getting through treatment, not worrying about how they’ll get there. This is why Young Lives Vs Cancer are calling on governments across the UK for a Young Cancer Patient Travel Fund to help cover the cost of travelling to treatment for all young cancer patients.

In Scotland, the Young Patients Family Fund covers some travel costs, but it’s not open to everyone. We want to see this Fund expanded to all young cancer patients across the UK, so everyone can get the help they need.

Do you agree? You can help make a deference and get better financial support for young cancer patients!

Like facts and figures? We’ve got some for you…
Young Lives vs Cancer research found that on average, every month, children and young people with cancer and their families spend £250 on travel costs alone, and travel around 350 miles. This is leaving many (71%) struggling to meet these costs, as well as cutting back in other areas, taking on debt and struggling to keep up with other bills and expenses.
