In the Hospitals
CCF helps children who are newly diagnosed with cancer and undergoing active treatment with their hospital experience. We offer emotional, financial and social support, with a focus on therapeutic play and psychotherapy for the children and support activities for their caregivers. Our social workers and counsellors are sited in KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) and the National University Hospital (NUH) to work alongside our medical partners in the paediatric oncology wards.
In the Community
With more children surviving childhood cancer, CCF Community Social Work Team provides continual care to help enhance the quality of life for survivors. We help children return to school and support siblings of children with cancer. In collaboration with corporate partners, we offer social and recreational activities for the children and their families.
In the Homes
When a child is at the end stage of his/her life, it is a tremendously challenging time for the dying child and the family members. Palliative support and bereavement support are critical services provided by CCF professionals to improve the quality of life of the impacted families.
