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
