About

Cancer Council

We are Australia’s leading cancer charity working across every aspect of every cancer. Every day, we support families affected by cancer when they need it most, speak out on behalf of the community on cancer issues, empower people to reduce their cancer risk, and find new ways to better detect and treat cancer.

With your help we’re getting closer to a cancer free future every minute, every hour, every day.

OUR IMPACT

Cancer Council is the only charity that works across every area of cancer, from research to prevention and support. Every minute, every hour, every day we're getting closer to a cancer free future

SUPPORT

We offer a range of services to support anyone affected by cancer. In 2017 we helped thousands of Australians get the support they need answering over 41,000 calls through our 13 11 20 information and support line

RESEARCH

We fund more cancer research than any other non-government organisation in Australia. In 2017, thanks to the support of our community, we directed almost $60 million along with our research partners in cancer across Australia.

PREVENTION

We know that preventing cancer is one of the most effective ways of creating a cancer free future. We develop programs that encourage and empower people to lead healthier lifestyles to help reduce their cancer risk.

ADVOCACY

We work with the community to change laws and policies to reduce cancer risks and improve cancer care.
