Cancer changes everything and it can be hard to know where to turn or who you can really talk to as people often just don’t get it. With Canteen Connect, you can easily connect with others who know exactly what you’re going through.
Chatting with people in similar situations can help you feel less alone and make dealing with a close family’s cancer or your own that little bit easier.
Whether you want to connect with someone your own age (12-25 years old), join a conversation, attend an event, or you’d like some extra support from a counsellor around any of the challenges that cancer can bring, Canteen Connect is here for you, 24/7.
- People like Me – find and connect with other young people who have similar cancer stories
- Discussions – Join conversations about anything and everything – from cancer through to your favourite movies, music and games
- Events – change up your day and join one of our events
- Counselling chat – counsellors are available online seven days a week

“I love this online community because joining it made me realise I’m not alone and I have so many things to be grateful for 😊.”
“I've just joined Canteen now because I've come to terms with the fact that I need to talk to people who've experienced the whole ordeal and/or are in remission, since I can't really empathise with anyone else with this in real life.”
“Sometimes the realisation that she's gone for good is very overwhelming. My friends and family are all really supportive and want to try and help me, but they just don't quite always know what to say.”
