We help people in and around Yorkshire avoid, survive and cope with cancer.
Our vision is that every single person in every community in and around Yorkshire has the very best chance of living a long and healthy life with, without and beyond cancer.
Our goal is to ensure that by 2025, at least 2,000 more people in the region survive cancer every year.
565 people are diagnosed with cancer every week in Yorkshire, and people in Yorkshire are more likely to get cancer, and more likely to die from it, than most other counties in England.
There are many reasons for this, including social deprivation, post-industrialisation and lifestyle choices. But there are also clear disparities in the availability of healthcare services and inequalities accessing early diagnostics, clinical trials and the latest treatments.
We have committed to investing £100m over the next 10 years to tackle the region’s biggest cancer problems.
We will work in partnership with researchers, scientists and clinicians, the NHS, Public Health bodies and other charities to make life-changing improvements to cancer outcomes in Yorkshire.
