Statement of Purpose

The Children’s Cancer Family Support Alliance (“the Alliance”) is a group of independent, not-for-profit organisations committed to supporting children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer and their families.

The Alliance is focused on services provided for children and young people in Victoria and Tasmania and their families. Some of these organisations operate nationally, others are state-based, and some are local.

The initiatives of the Alliance are focused on providing programs and services to enhance the quality of life for children and adolescents with cancer.

Our aims include:

Information Sharing

To ensure patients and families are aware of the various support services available to them.


To grow awareness of the issues surrounding children and adolescents with cancer and their families. To highlight their needs – in hospitals, with the wider public and State governments.

Service Improvement

For Alliance members to better understand the services that are presently available for children and their families in hospitals and in the home. To identify opportunities for the Alliance members to provide additional services for families.
