Every day in the UK, 34 adults are diagnosed with cancer. Teenage and young adult cancer services often finish as people reach their 25th birthday, this together with adult cancer services focussing on an older demographic results in many young adults feeling isolated and unsupported.

Trekstock is the only charity that specifically supports young adults in their 20s and 30s with cancer, often known as the lost cancer tribe. Many will spend long periods in hospital with much older people, at a very different life stage and age to them.

Trekstock, based in London provides support to young adults facing all types of cancer across the UK. The charity works tirelessly to give them the tools they need to get moving physically, socially and psychologically both through and beyond cancer.

The Chair will provide leadership and direction to the Board of Trustees, enabling them to fulfil their responsibilities for the overall governance and strategic direction of the work nationally.
