CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. They provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. They are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.

CLIC Sargent history

CLIC Sargent was formed in 2005 after a successful merger between CLIC and Sargent Cancer Care for Children.

  • Sargent Cancer Care for Children – founded in 1968 by Sylvia Darley OBE as a lasting memory to the late Sir Malcolm Sargent.
  • CLIC – Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood – founded in 1976 in the south west by Bob Woodward following the diagnosis of his young son Robert with cancer two years before. Sadly, Robert died in 1977 aged 11 years, and Bob went on to dedicate his life to charity work.

Cornwall Hospice Care is a truly Cornish charity that reaches out from our two hospices to provide care across our communities. Thanks to our inspirational staff and volunteers we provide support in a range of ways and settings and that means we reach many more people than those who need to use our intensive care beds at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell and St Julia’s Hospice in Hayle.
