Every day in the UK, 34 young adults are diagnosed with cancer. 

Our vision is a future where anyone in their 20s or 30s who has heard the words "it's cancer" is given tailored support that matches their unique needs.

We’re the only charity that offers tailored support to this age group of cancer patients and we work to tackle social isolation and improve quality of life through and beyond their treatment. 

Our mission is to provide support, guidance and connection to a community of young adults who have been diagnosed with cancer through unique experiences, specialist advice designed to keep them active during or beyond treatment, informative events and expert information.

Getting diagnosed with cancer is like becoming part of a club you never wanted to join - but know we’re here to help you figure it out. Community is at the heart of what we do. If you’ve felt isolated in the wake of your cancer diagnosis, our community will help you feel connected.



  • Anyone diagnosed with cancer in their 20s or 30s 
  • Anyone in their 20s or 30s who is living with the effects of cancer and its treatments 
  • Childhood survivors of cancer living with late effects in their 20s and 30s
  • Anyone in their 20s or 30s being treated for MDS, Aplastic Anaemia, Low-Grade glioma, Borderline ovarian cancer or Basal Cell Carcinoma, thrombocythaemia

Trekstock was founded in 2009 and delivers services to young adults across the UK. Through our specially tailored programmes, we’re able to be there for each and every young person, no matter what type of cancer they are diagnosed with or at what stage their diagnosis is.
