A cancer diagnosis may result in a child not being able to attend school for a period of time. CCA recognises the challenges that this may create for children and thus has developed the Home Tutor Scheme to support children who are unable to attend school. Additionally, CCA wishes to recognise the hardship that young people with a childhood cancer have had to face; through the provision of the Garrick Scholarship Fund CCA hopes to encourage young people to undertake further studies and/or personal development activities.
Home Tutor Scheme
The Home Tutor Scheme (HTS) provides home based educational support for school aged children who are currently receiving treatment for cancer and are unable to attend school as a result of their diagnosis. The HTS is fully funded by the Childhood Cancer Association.
