About Cancer Council

We are Australia's leading cancer charity and we work across every aspect of every cancer.

Every day, we support people impacted by cancer when they need it most, speak out on behalf of the community on cancer issues, empower people to reduce their cancer risk, and find new ways to better detect and treat cancer.

How we put your funds to work

Thank you to our generous morning tea hosts and donors.
Here’s how, together, we were able to make a difference for people impacted by cancer last year:


Little Aussies protected across the country from harmful UV rays through our SunSmart school program, reducing their risk of cancer in the future.

$51.7 million

Invested in research across Australia along with our research partners, making us the largest non-government funder of research in the country.

Our services were used over


times by Australians affected by cancer, providing vital support when they need it most and making every stage of their cancer journey easier.
