Where to Turn


Founded in 1976 by families and medical staff, Candlelighters help support children with cancer and their families. We fund research, family holidays, grants, essential additional services within the hospital and vital support for families battling children's cancer.
On the Wards... we fund essential additional services from funding posts, to purchasing IT equipment, to building a state of the art Pavilion for families to take a break from the sounds and smells of the hospital.
Family Support... whether we are supporting families financially, giving families a home away from home during treatment at the Candlelighters Cottage, sending them on a much needed break or welcoming them to our family support centre, The Square, we are there for families both practically and emotionally.
Through Research... each year we plough hundreds of thousands of pounds into the research and study of children's cancer. We are proud this is funded by the people of Yorkshire with the potential for international impact.
