Practical & Emotional Support

Our team of volunteers are ready to help with urgent practical jobs when you need to lighten the load.

We can help you with:

  • Small household chores
  • Pet walking
  • Grass cutting and similar jobs 

And we can help in other ways too:

  • Completing forms
  • We can help arrange transport to hospital or other location as needed
  • We have volunteers who are happy to be there when you need to talk, some of who have been through similar difficult times. 
  • We can also help arrange professional support

This service is currently available in the Norfolk area only. Please complete the form (link below) to apply.


The main criteria are the same as for our support grants:

  • There is a child (under 18 years) in the household who has any type of cancer or brain tumour and is either; currently on treatment, recently completed treatment (within 6 months), is between treatments or is receiving palliative care OR who is under investigation for suspected childhood cancer or brain tumour

The online application form is short but you will need to provide a photo or scan of the following items to verify the information you provide (unless you have already provided this information on one of our grant application forms):

  • A hospital letter confirming the diagnosis (if possible) and containing the name and address of the child
  • A copy of another letter, or driving licence, containing the name and address of the parent above

The online form for this service is currently being reviewed.
