Tax relief

Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG, TYAC's parent organisation) is recognised by the HMRC via its register of Approved Professional Organisations 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.
