Registered Charity No
We are working to develop cures for all types of cancer. Our scientists believe that cancer does not have to be something to die from, but a disease that can be treated as people live full lives. We fund pioneering research into better treatments and ways to diagnose cancer earlier, to save lives.
Action Against Cancer is different because we are able to support innovative new scientific research due to our lack of bureaucracy. We provide start up funding to projects that could not secure support from other sources. Larger funders require existing data before providing finance for experiments, and this does not allow for brand new ideas - Action Against Cancer fills this gap.
Our approach has been shown to work, with the discovery of a cancer-causing gene and much more. Of every £1 given to Action Against Cancer, 92p is spent directly on scientists’ salaries and equipment.
Donors know that their support is making a huge impact in cancer research.
