Getting further support

In partnership with specialist youth charity, Mind Over Cancer, young people who need further support can apply to take part in new monthly free mental wellbeing sessions between October and May.

Would you like to join a free online group where you can remember the good times with the Trust and talk with people who understand about some of the issues it may have raised? Maybe you just want to chat to new friends who 'get it'.

The groups will be full of care, kindness, joyfulness and friendship. It's a place to learn, process and reflect and to look after your wellbeing. Think you could benefit? Find out more and apply now

CLOSING DATE: Applications are closed for 2023/24.

Belief in a brighter future

My life now

It’s been 20 years since the Trust first set sail – what are the young people who have been on trips up to now?

They check back in to share how the Trust has inspired them to believe in a brighter future living through and beyond cancer. Our 'My Life Now' series shows a positive future after cancer is a reality.

Never miss a 'My Life Now' by signing up for our monthly's Trust News e-newsletter.

Getting ahead on the water

Coming on your first trip and want to find out what sailing's all about? Getting back on the water and looking to brush up on those skills?

The Trust skippers have got your back - they are awesome at making sure you have a great and safe time. In our Trust Tutorials series, they explain everything you have, or will, learn when you get afloat in Cowes or Largs.

From tying the essential knots, understanding how sails make the boat move and how the tide works, to navigation, predicting the weather and learning about lifejackets, everything you need to know is right here. And that's before we even mention Uno...
