Candlelighters in your Community will provide the same great range of services previously offered on board the Candlelighters bus, however they will now be delivered in community spaces across Yorkshire. This new model of support will grant us the flexibility to reach more families and also the opportunity to provide more resources as we increase our work space.

The Candlelighters Bus was a wonderful 3 year project, which helped us ascertain what support was needed within the community. We have learnt many lessons along the way, bridged gaps in local support and also reduced the isolation felt by some families who were unable the reach our family support centre in Leeds. We have seen the bus triumph in many areas, it has introduced individuals to support they didn’t know was available, helped form friendships between families living in the same area and allowed our team on-board to build new connections with families we hadn’t met before. The Candlelighters Bus has also allowed us to reinforce our belief that support to families affected by childhood cancer is never ending and can be accessed at any point.

It is safe to say that we will miss our lovely bus, but we are very excited to be enhancing our services in the community. We will be coming to a place near you very soon, so make sure you book your treatment or pop in to see our friendly team for a brew & chat.
