Support For You

Having good mental health, moving well, eating well and incorporating the things you love doing can really help during your cancer journey.

Feel Like You,  Feel In Control,
Feel Empowered,  Feel Purpose

Our wellbeing support packages are tailored to suit your needs helping you feel well, move well, eat well, and live well. 

The Ella Dawson Foundation works alongside a team of experts to enable young adults, aged 18-30 yrs old, and their families and carers access tailored wellbeing support packages unique to their needs at any stage of their cancer diagnosis within a safe, supporting and likeminded community.

You can register for support online by clicking the buttons below. If you would like to find out more information, click through to each of our wellbeing programmes below or if you'd like to get in touch, 

we'd love to chat.

Each young person registered with the charity can access any and all of services up to two years post completion of active treatment. Once registered you will receive a welcome message from Tasha, our Health & Wellbeing Coordinator. Tasha is here to support you through our programmes and services, and is a friendly face to answer your queries or questions.


Prioritising your wellbeing during, after and beyond treatment can be a way of regaining some normality and control, managing adverse effects of cancer treatment, and living well.

"I cannot put into words how grateful I am for all of the support you have provided. It has been a breath of fresh air and I really don't think I would be the person I am today without it."
