Who We Are

Action Cancer is Northern Ireland’s leading, local cancer charity. Our mission is to save lives and support local people through cancer awareness, prevention, detection and support. We provide the following services:

In Northern Ireland someone receives a cancer diagnosis every hour of every day and one in two of us will receive a cancer diagnosis in our lifetime. While cancer rates are on the increase, early detection and improved treatments mean that survival rates are improving. Our services have never been needed more.

We deliver our services from Action Cancer House, Belfast, & onboard our mobile unit, the Big Bus, which travels to 225 locations throughout Northern Ireland annually. As well as operating out of Action Cancer House, our therapeutic services have a regional presence in L/Derry, Strabane, Limavady, Portrush, Coleraine, Bangor, Lurgan and West Belfast,& we deliver our health promotion programmes to schools, community groups and workplaces all across Northern Ireland.

This year, Action Cancer aims to provide early detection, support and prevention services to over 30,000 people, including breast screening for 10,000 women.

All money raised for Action Cancer stays in Northern Ireland to support local people. We need to raise £4 million every year to deliver our vital services. Action Cancer does not receive government funding and we therefore rely heavily on donations from the public and the local business community.
