About Cancer Council NSW

About Cancer Council NSWWe believe that we can and will beat cancer. There are things that we can all do every day to help make this happen.

Every year in NSW alone, more than 36,600 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed, and the impact on families, carers and communities is significant.

Together with our volunteers, supporters, stakeholders and staff, we are committed to reducing the impact of cancer on individuals and the community, and to lessening the burden for people affected by cancer.

We are the only organisation that works across every area of every cancer:

  • conducting and funding world-class research that underpins our work in preventing cancer
  • supporting people as they navigate the cancer journey
  • advocating to ensure that governments take action on cancer.

We are there not only for those touched by cancer today, but to prevent and manage cancer into the future.

We are a member of Cancer Council Australia, together with Cancer Councils from every state and territory across Australia. Cancer Council NSW is an independent charity and 96% community funded. Our unique combination of local program delivery, community engagement and national influence enables everyone who cares about cancer to make the biggest possible difference.
