What we do

Dragonfly Cancer Trust supports young cancer patients with very limited time helping families and young couples create precious and lasting memories together. The charity provides Cash Gifts and organises Dragonfly Dreams for children and young people up to the age of 24 years old throughout the UK. Our new Footprint Fund helps those who are left behind create or do something special to ensure that their memory lives on.

Together we can help children and young people leave their footprint on the world.

Support us

There are many ways you can support Dragonfly Cancer Trust as an individual or organisation. Whether you take part in a challenge, attend one of our events, or hold your own dragonfly fundraiser, you will be making a very real and positive difference to the young cancer patients we support, as well as those they are preparing to leave behind.
