Trusts and foundations

Work with us to help prevent cancer today.

There are 3 million people living with cancer in the UK – a figure predicted to double over the next decade, but doesn’t have to be this way.

Together we can help to stop cancer in its tracks.

We’re proud and thankful to be supported by generous donations from a wide range of charitable trusts and foundations. These are crucial in helping us to deliver our cutting-edge research and health information projects.

We help empower people to take action to lead healthier, happier, cancer-free lives and we need your help to continue with our research, training and advice.

Your generosity saves lives be part of something amazing

Every donation we receive, no matter how big or small, has a huge impact on people’s lives now and for generations to come.

Your support will help boost our vital work preventing cancer in many ways. Funding can be restricted to a specific area of our groundbreaking work or used to fund our core essential services.

Your support could go towards:

  • World-class research to help improve our understanding of cancer risks and how best to reduce them as well as how diet, nutrition and physical activity impacts people who are living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis.
  • Providing advice and training to health professionals throughout the UK about what works in cancer prevention and survival
  • Our online cookery classes, hosted by a professional chef and Specialist Oncology Dietitian empowering people to try nutritious ingredients and recipes designed specifically for people who are living with cancer, their carers and families.
  • Our nutrition helpline, providing access to a Specialist Oncology Dietitian for people living with cancer, or their carers.
  • Our Inspire programme, investing in early career researchers’ who often find it difficult to have their innovative and novel ideas supported. This empowers them to lead their own research projects, accelerating their careers.

In return for your generosity, we pledge to always keep you fully updated on the progress of the project that you’ve chosen to support, so you can measure the precise impact and reach that your funds have had.

We invite you to attend our events and hear more about us, perhaps visit one of our innovative projects to see our work on the ground and hear from the people who benefit from our work.

If you represent a charitable trust or foundation and would like to hear more about how you can support our work to stop cancer before it starts, please get in touch. We’d be delighted to hear from you.

Our work would simply not be possible without your generous and much valued support.

Together we can prevent cancer.
