About Us

Being told your child has cancer or another life-limiting condition is devastating. Day-to-day life is turned upside down, and many families feel unable to cope. 

Momentum is there to support the entire family during times of unimaginable strain – the children and their parents, but also siblings and grandparents.

We support children and their families from all over Surrey and SW London. Families with children facing cancer or another life-limiting condition know we’re there for the whole journey and the whole family for as long as they need us.

All families are different, so we offer individually-tailored support through our family support programme, providing holidays, trips and treats to help during the stress of treatment. We also work hand in hand with local hospitals to improve the facilities and healing environment for children during hospital stays. 

Momentum was founded in 2004 and the charity has an office in Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey. At any one time, we support over 250 families.
