The Alike App

Living with cancer can be lonely. Speaking to others who have been there, done that, and worn the unflattering hospital gown makes all the difference. That’s what the Alike app is for. 

Created by Brad Gudger, a two-time cancer survivor, former broadcaster and pioneer of the voluntary sector, the app is a place to share, connect, vent or show off (if that's your thing). Whatever you need to do, whenever you need to do it, we're here. So jump in.

Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust

Our charity partner, The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust is a national charity that inspires young people aged 8-24 to believe in a brighter future living through and beyond cancer. 

‘Through sailing and outdoor adventure, young people gain a new sense of purpose and self-worth, rediscover independence, and feel optimism for the future. They realise what they are capable of again - physically, mentally, and socially - and stop feeling like ‘the only one’. They start to re-establish their place in the world.’
