Supporting families of children and young
 people with cancer in the East Midlands

What we do

PASIC provide emotional, social and practical support to families of children and young people with cancer living in the East Midlands to improve the quality of their lives.

We support the whole family and offer the means to build support networks and reduce isolation to help make a positive difference to families coping with childhood cancer. As a parent led charity, our experience working with families over the past 40 years means we understand the needs of our families and the difficulties they face.

  • We fund a Family Support Workers at Nottingham Children’s Hospital and Leicester Royal Infirmary. We offer support groups, information, advice and signposting to other sources of help.
  • We give much needed social support and help reduce isolation. We organise days out, activities and events for all the family enabling them to spend quality time together and have fun!
  • We give grants to parents caring for a child with cancer finding it hard to make ends meet at a very difficult time.

For many parents and children, we’re a social lifeline at what can be a traumatic and isolating time.
