Proud to be a TYAC member

In recognition of teenage and young adult cancer care and support as a distinct specialism, all TYAC members will be able to use the post-nominal letters 'MTYAC'.

We encourage all our members to use this designation to show their pride in being a member of TYAC and their support of TYA cancer care as a specialist field.

Tax relief

TYAC is recognized by the HMRC via its register of Approved Professional Organizations and Learned Societies. So, if you pay your own subscription, you should be able to claim back 20% to 40% of the cost through tax relief. Just check out the relevant information on the HMRC website once you’ve joined.
