We’re in this together

Get Support

Hand in Hand offers a range of practical and emotional support services to support families facing a child’s cancer diagnosis. By engaging local professional service suppliers, we provide a tailor-made package of care to suit each family’s individual needs.

Get the Support You Need

Our focus has always been to give these children and their families on-the-ground support in order to minimise the impact that both the diagnosis and frequent long-distance travel for treatment has on family life.

Practical Support

Hand in Hand provides family meal services around the country with the help of local services, supermarket vouchers, and online meal delivery services. Once a family requires help with meals, the Charity works with the family to find the best solution for their needs.

Hand in Hand provide their services in every county in the Republic of Ireland.

Emotional Support

Hand in Hand are delighted to be able to offer Play Therapy through our in-house play therapist Denise Gordon in our Cancer Support Centre in Loughrea, County Galway. Play Therapy is available through Hand in Hand for families throughout Ireland affected by childhood cancer. This new service is available for children affected by childhood cancer, either their own diagnosis, or the diagnosis of an immediate family member. Children use play to communicate, and play therapy assists them to express and work through their feelings.

How It Works

Hand in Hand is there from the very start, looking after the ordinary while families deal with extraordinary circumstances. By partnering with local professional service providers for essential services, we aim to help alleviate some of the stress and anxiety that accompanies a cancer diagnosis and treatment. We offer a range of support and assistance so that no family in Ireland has to face cancer alone.

Practical Support

From household cleaning to family meal services, our practical support services ensure the little things are looked after when a child is diagnosed with cancer so families can focus on the big things like treatment, wellbeing and spending time together. 

Emotional Support

Children and their families often require emotional support through the difficult times a cancer diagnosis brings. We provide play therapy, counselling and more from the point of diagnosis onwards in a caring and supportive environment.

Get Involved

Your involvement, support and donations can have a huge impact on the lives of children with cancer and their families across Ireland. Money raised is used to fund our essential services so any support you can offer is much appreciated.
