Cancer Council SA prides itself in operating at or exceeding industry expectations across business practices in the healthcare industry, the fundraising industry and the broader charity sector.

Our staff and regular volunteers are asked to operate within a Code of Conduct    This Code of Conduct helps to maintain the best possible working environment and ensure we meet the needs of the community we serve.

Cancer Council SA is an organisational member of the Fundraising Institute of Australia (FIA) and aims to meet or exceed the Principles and Standards of Fundraising Practice for the industry.

If you feel that Cancer Council SA has in anyway breached any of the principles, standards or code of conduct we would really like to hear from you. We have literally thousands of volunteer fundraisers collecting monies across the state at any one time. It is important that feedback comes through to us so we can correct any activities that do not meet industry standards or your expectations. Cancer Council SA relies heavily on community fundraising activities and we do our best to ensure these activities meet community expectations.
