Our Team

Our staff team is based in Nottingham and Leicester but the work we do reaches out to families all over the East Midlands to make sure we’re doing the best we can for families living with childhood cancer. Do get in touch if you have any queries, would like support or would like to support PASIC!


Chief Executive

Louise Towse

In another life, I taught French at secondary level in an inner-city school. That changed the day my then eight-year-old daughter Rose was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Living in hospital for nearly two years was tough for us both, but also for her brother and sister who were without their mum for weeks on end. So I understand all too well the difficulties facing families and just how vital a lifeline PASIC is when times are tough. After Rose’s death, I became an advisory member of the Health and Care Professions Council and, in 2015, joined PASIC. I'm passionate about supporting families of children with cancer and raising awareness about the disease and its impact. I love building relationships with supporters in the local community and developing the role of volunteers so we can increase the help we offer and provide the best service possible. Please get in touch if you can help us in any way, or if you simply want to know more about our work.
