Absolute legends, otherwise known as Young Lives vs Cancer social workers! This World Social Work Day, help us celebrate our amazing social care team by sending them a message of appreciation. Let's make their day - they deserve it.
Thank you Jenny (and Josie for times gone by) for making Ben’s treatments so much less daunting by providing such a comfortable and convenient place for us to stay. And thank you for checking up on him and for being there. It’s such a comfort to know there’s someone we can turn to - someone who gets it! Thank you.
You are so kind beyond believe
Your help and caring calmed us down,
And gave us soothing relief.
You care about people
and it shows.
You are generous with your energy,
giving of your time,
We will remember your kindness to us.

with your thoughtfulness.
Were glad someone like you

We’ll always think of you
With a glad and grateful heart;
You are very special;
We knew it from the start!
A big shout out from West Cornwall to the fabulous CLIC Sargent social workers, who guided and supported us through tough times. Thank you for absolutely everything that you do for young people and families like ours. xx
Thank you to all of the Social workers especially Suzie who continually went over and above for the young people and their families and without whom Pete's battle would have been so much harder to fight. Eternally grateful x
The fact you could be there when we couldn’t in 2020, means an immense amount.
To support my sister, brother-in-law and niece in the midst of a pandemic, when we couldn’t even offer a hug will never be forgotten!
Thank you. X
I am full of admiration for the way you support children who need your help. Thank you for all those tough working days when you fight for the children to have the help that is crucial to them, despite what’s happening in your lives. Keep on keeping on and may you all have the strength that you need. THANK YOU 💐
Your dedication to our family through our journey was wonderful,unfortunately we did not get the outcome we wished for but you were there every Step.We will continue to support you in any way we can in Ethans memory.A very Brave Boy.❤
It is 11 years ago for us as a family going through the cancer process with my grandson in law and we were sent an angel in Louise she supported my granddaughter and her boys through the whole thing. God bless all your social workers
Our social worker was wonderful supporting my son and myself, I don't know how I'd have coped without you. Eternal thanks to you and all the other wonderful social workers who support cancer patients and their families and help them through the most trying of times most of us are ever likely to go through.
You are a lifeline for these families at probably the toughest time in their lives. Your work is invaluable. Thank you for your continuing hard work and commitment . You are amazing! Keep safe and strong.
Ethan got diagnosed when he was 1 and he was so sick. The first few weeks we’re very scary. Laura helped us so much with disabled badges to getting help financially. I’m dislexic so she even helped fill out our forms.
I had quite a lot of depression and anxiety and sometimes Laura would just pop round to chat and just see how we are.
Clic Sargent are amazing and Laura I will never forget her kindness
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love, care and kindness you give to children and young people needing your support plus the encouragement and support you show to their loved ones during dark, awful times. God bless you all.
My son William was diagnosed with a rare Chondrosarcoma in 2015. His treatment was based at UCLH. Our social worker at the time was just amazing. She helped William and myself with so much. Without her we would have been lost. She was a strong arm of support that we needed at a time where everything was so overwhelming. She not only supported William and I, but also my other children who struggled with everything. Thank you so much for all you do for our young children and their families.
I would like to give my utmost enthusiastic gratitude to the social workers of clic. My son died young, 39 years, of cancer, and whilst not having any attachment to clic himself, I know the enormous contribution that cancer social workers like you, make. Well done, and know that you are appreciated tremendously, especially by those of us who know of your skills and untiring dedication to your task. Take a bow!
Thank you so much Eirlys for all your help and words of wisdom over the last 2 years. You’ve always had time to listen to me and laugh with me. Me and my fam couldn’t have got through it without you!
Here’s the pic I drew of you last year 😁
Thank you for your support throughout treatment to both of us. Always there to listen and you are all so understanding and helpful. Having a diagnosis of cancer is so hard for any child, teenager, young adult, but also so devastating for the family especially parents and siblings. The social workers where there from the very first day, it is very much a blur, but I remember Lucy coming to sit with me and talk to me about what support we may need and how she will help us and she kept to her word.
