Our Charity Partners

England, Scotland and Wales:

Domino’s Pizza has selected Teenage Cancer Trust as its charity partner in England, Scotland and Wales.

Teenage Cancer Trust exists to improve the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer aged between 13 and 24. They make sure they're treated as young people first, cancer patients second. 

Across the UK, in local towns and cities they fund and build specialist units within NHS hospitals, bringing young people together so they can be treated together by teenage cancer experts, in the best place for them. They are the world's leading force in the expert care of young people with cancer, bringing together young people to be treated by teenage cancer experts, alongside local people their own age, in an environment designed just for them – e.g. They don't look or feel like normal hospital wards, instead they're designed by young people for young people with vibrant colours, music, pool tables, fun activities and Wi-Fi access. These may sound like small things but they help enormously to maintain a sense of normality amongst the disruption of cancer.

So far the charity has funded and developed 28 specialist cancer units in NHS hospitals across the UK.

As a teenager the impact of cancer is not only physical. The psychological, social and emotional impact of cancer on young people is also enormous. Imagine, just as life is taking off, cancer shatters everything – your confidence, self-esteem, education, work prospects, hopes and future. Like Domino's,  we rely on an expert team to deliver our services. Teenage Cancer Trust Nurses and Youth Support Co-ordinators ensure that young people and their families receive the personalised, specialist care and emotional support they need.  

They have also recently launched a new Education work stream, to educate young people about cancer and empower them to take control of their health and seek help if they are worried.

Teenage Cancer Trust relies 100% on voluntary donations to fund its vital work with young people with cancer.  To learn more about Teenager Cancer Trust please click on www.teenagecancertrust.org

Northern Ireland:

Domino’s Pizza has selected the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice as a charity partner in NI.

As the only children's hospice within Northern Ireland offering palliative and specialist care to life-limited children and young people, NI Children's Hospice recognised the need for an extension of its services and so in 2012, building work to a new children's hospice in Fermanagh was complete.  

Hospice care is much more than pain and symptom control but also pays attention to the individual and helps them in a way appropriate to them. They provide over 90% of their care to patients, children and young people and their families in their own home through the work of their community teams.

At Hospice, they see the patient and the family as one unit of care. They see the patient first and their illness second. They offer care and support to the whole family, because caring is at the heart of everything they do.
