The charity has been providing quality support to families with children who suffer from Cancer or Leukaemia In Tayside and North East Fife since our founding in 1994. The diagnosis of Cancer or Leukaemia in a child causes tremendous stress for families who struggle physically, practically, emotionally, and financially with the intensive, intrusive treatment regime and the inevitable disruption it brings to family life. TCCL aims to help at this difficult time in the following ways:
Our mission is to support local children and keep all funds within the local area; therefore we only offer grants to children and their families in Tayside, (Angus, Dundee and Perth & Kinross) and North East Fife . We do offer holidays in TCCL Lodge for families of children with cancer from all of Scotland, although there is a priority booking for Tayside families. Our eligibility criteria are below.
TCCL supports all children and young people under 18 years old, who are diagnosed with any type of cancer or leukaemia and who live in Tayside or NE Fife, from diagnosis till 3 years after the completion of their treatment.
We offer financial support in terms of travel grants to get parents to and from treatment if their child is in hospital away from home. We provide grants to families who need support to make family life easier. We’ve provided everything from a new washing machine, to heating grants to keep children warm during the winter months, to driving lessons for a Mum to help her get to the hospital. Whatever families need, we aim to support them.
We offer much more than just a financial support!
