Cancer Research UK

At Cancer Research UK, we recognise the incredibly valuable contribution that young people can make to society and to realising our goal of seeing 3 in 4 people surviving cancer by 2034. We pledge to:

  • Offer young people a range of meaningful ways to get involved and to help beat cancer sooner
  • To build our relationships with relevant youth involving organisations to further promote the benefits of volunteering and youth social action (e.g. NUS, RAG, BBC Radio 1)
  • Celebrate and recognise young people who are involved in youth social action by sharing a range of volunteering case studies and stories
  • To ensure our award-winning internship scheme is flexible in allowing young people to fit volunteering around their study, work and social lives, enabling more young people to get involved

We’ve just pledged to the #iwill campaign recently – watch this space for updates on our progress


Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
Over 700 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
