The Osborne Trust

The Trust was launched in 2014 by Emma Osborne after her cancer diagnosis aged 36 years. The Trust was started from the families own experience of how they dealt with the situation, what worked and what they found lacking in terms of family support. Emma’s 2 children’s (aged 7 and 4 when Mum was diagnosed) experiences are the driving force of the Trust’s work.
The Trust provides children aged 16 years and under whose parent/s have cancer access to recreational activities during a parent/s treatment by funding up to 3 activities such as a cinema trip, play centre visit or a meal out. Activities are supervised by an adult family member or friend. The aim is to offer the parent/s some rest and the children some time away from all that cancer entails.
Ozzy the Elephant is our mascot, our lovely stuffed elephant. Calling our elephant Ozzy was a natural fit from our name. We provide an Ozzy in pink or grey to girls and boys referred to us at the Trust. Our aim is for Ozzy to offer some comfort to the children during this time.
