Are you a parent or carer of a young person with cancer? We can support you.
Once a young person has joined The Acorn Project, we offer support to their parents or carer too.
Meet other parents sharing a similar experience
Parents and carers are invited to meet up at our shared space in Hastings, or out in the community. This is an opportunity for them to connect with others, draw strength from common experience, and share insights from their own journey.
Acknowledgement and insight from others
We host workshops and training sessions with invited guest speakers from other community organisations to talk about specific issues such as anxiety or depression. We teach relaxation and breathing techniques to parents and carers, acknowledging the vital role they play during the cancer experience.
