About Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group

Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG) is a leading national charity and expert voice for all childhood cancers. 

Each week in the UK and Ireland, more than 30 children are diagnosed with cancer. Our network of dedicated professional members work together in treatment, care and research to help shape a future where all children with cancer survive and live happy, healthy and independent lives. 

We fund and support innovative world-class research and collaborate, both nationally and internationally, to drive forward improvements in childhood cancer. Our award-winning information resources help lessen the anxiety, stress and loneliness commonly felt by families, giving support throughout the cancer journey.

Background

Formed in 1977, CCLG now has more than 950 professional members working in the field of children’s cancers in the UK and Ireland. We are the experts in childhood cancer. We are also a registered charity, providing a range of information products for patients and families, and funding a wide variety of research into childhood cancers. 

In 2018, we published our first strategic plan, setting out our ambitions for the coming years. Our four key goals are to:

  • Provide leadership and expertise for the treatment and care of children and young people with cancer. CCLG is a leading voice for children’s cancer, liaising with community groups, the government and the NHS to influence policies. It plans to use its expertise to improve treatment and care and meet the needs of patients and families.
  • Improve diagnosis times by increasing awareness through dedicated resources for both GPs and parents.
  • Strengthen its expert information portfolio to support more families of children and young people with cancer.
  • Through its funding of world-class research, the charity aims to deepen its understanding and foster collaborations to support some of the most innovative and ground-breaking research into childhood cancer.

In 2018, we merged with Teenagers and Young Adults with Cancer (TYAC), the UK and Ireland’s professional association for those working in this specialised field. We are now working to expand the work of TYAC as part of CCLG.
