Cancer Council brings together Australia’s leading state and territory cancer organisations. Our vision is to minimise the threat of cancer through successful prevention, best treatment, support and world-class cancer research. To realise our vision Cancer Council undertakes a broad range of activities:
  • Research - We are the leading independent funders of cancer research in Australia, granting more than $50million a year in research grants.

  • Patient support - Cancer Councils coordinate a network of cancer support groups, services and programs to help improve the quality of life of cancer patients, people living with cancer, their families and carers.

  • Information - We provide evidence-based, up-to-date information about all aspects of cancer to:

  • Doctors and other health professionals - to help improve prevention, detection and treatment of cancer

  • Cancer patients and the general community - more than 100,000 people contact Cancer Councils for information and advice each year, chiefly through the Cancer Council Helpline (13 11 20)

  • Prevention - Our early detection and prevention programs aim to help people quit smoking, protect themselves from the sun, eat healthier foods and engage in physical activity to reduce the risk of cancer.

  • Treatment - Our Australia-wide network of health professionals, develop guidelines to provide the best evidence based treatment and care for cancer patients.

  • Advocacy - Cancer Council advises government on the needs of our stakeholders and provides an independent voice for improved cancer control policy based on the evidence.
