CLIC Sargent

CLIC Sargent gives grants to help children and young people who have been diagnosed with cancer or a bone marrow failure disorder.

Most young people and families use it to cover sudden expenses like travel to and from hospital and household bills and essential items.

Who is eligible?

We support children and young people who:

  • Receive a confirmed cancer or bone marrow failure disorder diagnosis from an NHS cancer or haematology service. This must have been before their 25th birthday and also within the last 12 months
  • Qualify for free NHS cancer treatment in the UK. This includes members of, or children or HMS Armed Forces and diplomatic core or embassies

How to apply?

If you are a young person, diagnosed between ages 16-24, or a parent of a child aged 0-15, you can apply for this grant by filling out the application form on CLIC Sargent's website.

Once your details have been verified, we will be in touch to process your grant.

CLIC Sargent can also support you with other financial and practical worries you may have. If you’re worried about debt, confused about benefits, trying to negotiate working arrangements, or have any other worries, you can also seek further advice by contacting our Welfare Advisor. They are available Monday – Friday from 10am-4pm on 0800 915 4439, email or book a Skype appointment.

Other information

CLIC Sargent can also help you with the following:

  • Clic Sargent Information for young people and Clic Sargent Information for parents – there’s a lot of information on cancer out there, but not all of it is accurate, let alone helpful. That’s why CLIC Sargent has a range of advice and guidance on your or your child’s diagnosis and the impact it can have.
  • Clic Sargent Peer-to-peer support – we run peer-to-peer support so you can meet other people going through cancer too. For example, our social media groups, which are set up exclusively for young people with cancer or parents of children and young people with cancer.
  • Clic Sargent Homes from Home – CLIC Sargent has Homes from Home close to many of the principal treatment centres across the UK where families can stay for free when a child or young person is in hospital on treatment.
  • Clic Sargent Social care support – our social care staff work in person and digitally to help you through everything that cancer throws at you at diagnosis, during treatment and when you want to take on the world again after cancer.
