Mission Statement

Our main purpose is simple: to save lives by preventing, controlling and curing cancer. We do this through our world-class research into over 200 types of cancer, all of which is entirely funded by our supporters.

We fund over 4,000 scientists, doctors and nurses across the UK who are working tirelessly to find new and better ways to beat cancer.

We don't just do research - every year we help millions of people by providing information for patients, health professionals and the public.

We push hard for positive changes in public policy and legislation, helping to keep cancer at the top of the health agenda and bring benefit to cancer patients.

We tell the world what's going on through a wide range of publications - from simple leaflets on prevention and detection to our Annual Review.

Each area of our work is making a real difference. As a direct result of your support and our research, more people are beating cancer than ever before - survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years.

We have around 550 charity shops across the UK and they play a vital role in raising funds and awareness for our cause.

As a shop volunteer you are among the most visible faces of the charity and contribute hugely to how the public perceive us and the work we do.
