Our impact

Every day we strive to ensure our work has a positive and lasting impact for children and families and the wider oncology community.


Creating lasting change

Solving Kids' Cancer UK exists to provide vital support across the UK to children and families affected by neuroblastoma, drive innovative clinical research and raise awareness of the impact of childhood cancer. 

We are striving to ensure our work has a positive and lasting impact for children, their families and the wider oncology community.

We do this by focussing on our three key pillars; Research, Support, Awareness.
