Thanks to our supporters and our partnership with the community, 2016/17 was another strong year for Cancer Council NSW.
This has been a year of change, a year of progress and most importantly a year of working together with and in the community to bring us closer to a cancer-free future.
See our highlights from 2016/17.
We work in local communities across the state, which means we can deliver programs and services that best meet their needs and have the greatest impact. Here is a snapshot of our stories.
Our strategic priorities
Research guides our path to a cancer-free future. We are committed to conducting and funding research that enhances outcomes across the entire cancer journey and is of value to the community.
By creating environments that promote cancer-smart behaviours, and helping people make healthier choices, we can reduce known cancer risks and lower cancer incidence.
Cancer Council NSW provides evidence-based information about cancer, as well as practical and emotional support to help people cope better with cancer.
Cancer Council NSW brings evidence and people together to influence policy, funding and legislation to help prevent cancer and improve cancer treatment and care.
With the help of our generous community supporters, each year we are getting closer and closer to a cancer-free future. Cancer Council NSW is 95% community funded.
Our work drives positive and lasting change at a grassroots level, and brings people together to create a cancer-free future.
