Membership categories and fees

Who can be a TYAC member?

Membership is open to professionals, of any discipline, working in teenage and young adult cancer care, support or research, whose role is based in the UK or Ireland. We also offer an international membership to professionals outside of the UK and Ireland.

Membership is open to doctors, nursing and allied health professionals, other health and social care professionals working in teenage and young adult cancer (e.g. psychologists, pharmacists, social workers) and those working to support young people with cancer (e.g. Youth Support Coordinators, youth workers, activity workers etc). 

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.

Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG) membership bundle

You must meet the eligibility criteria for both TYAC and CCLG membership to become a member of both organisation. CCLG membership is only open to those working in the NHS or researchers based in UK research institutions. Youth activity workers (or similar) employed directly by charities are not eligible for CCLG membership.
