Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work. We would also like to pay respect to the elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.

Welcome to this website, which was produced in consultation with the Aboriginal community to provide information and resources on cancer for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Our committment to closing the gap

Our vision for reconciliation is to close the 17 year life expectancy gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians. Closing the gap is core to Cancer Council NSW’s mission – we can’t defeat cancer until we have addressed the issue of cancer in Aboriginal people.
