Throughout 2015/16, Cancer Council NSW has continued to strengthen our commitment to beating cancer.
This year has been another effective year for Cancer Council NSW. Together our staff and volunteers have worked towards achieving our vision – that together we will beat cancer.
See our highlights from 2015/16.
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 is fundamental to unlocking the answers that will help us beat cancer. We are committed to conducting and funding research that enhances outcomes across the entire cancer journey.
By creating environments that promote cancer-smart behaviours and encouraging people to make healthier, cancer-smart lifestyle choices, we can reduce cancer risks and the rate of cancer.
Cancer can affect every area of a person’s life. Cancer Council NSW provides current, evidence-based information, and emotional and practical support for people affected by cancer.
We know that, at times, government policies do not reflect what evidence tells us about cancer prevention and access to care and treatment. We work with the community to change policies.
With the help of our generous community supporters, each year we are getting closer and closer to beating cancer. Cancer Council NSW is 96% community funded.
We bring people together to beat cancer and know that our vision can only be realised by harnessing the support and power of our community to drive positive and lasting change.
Cancer Council NSW recognises the need to improve the health of high risk groups and to change health behaviours.
I’m proud to support Cancer Council NSW and their call for the NSW Government to take action to increase the number of palliative care specialists.
I’ve had three direct connections to skin cancer, so I’m very passionate about promoting the prevention message and better sun protection behaviours.
