The Yorkshire Specialist Register of Cancer in Children and Young People (YSRCCYP) is a regional population based register of cancer diagnoses. It contains detailed demographic and clinical information on children and young adults aged 0-29 years diagnosed with cancer since 1974.

The YSRCCYP facilitates a programme of research investigating the epidemiology of cancer in young people and describing outcomes for long-term survivors.

The YSRCCYP collects personal data so it has very strict data protections. Our Patients and Survivors section has more information on how we use and protect your data, and the right of individuals and family members to opt-out of data collection.

The YSRCCYP covers Yorkshire and the Humber, spanning an area of 15,000 square kilometres with a population of 5 million people. Yorkshire and the Humber comprises a range of urban and rural communities with a significant ethnic minority population resident in parts of West Yorkshire.

The Candlelighters Trust has extended core funding for the YSRCCYP, enabling data collection and epidemiological research to continue until November 2022. Additional funding for 2017-2020 was provided by the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust.

The Yorkshire Register research team is led by Prof. Richard Feltbower.
