Cancer Council SA has a proud history of working across every aspect of every cancer for more than 90 years.

We have worked hard to reduce the rate and impact of cancer through research, prevention and support programs that make a real difference to the lives of South Australians.

But there is still more work to be done.

Despite improvements in cancer prevention and survival, the incidence of cancer is increasing. Thirty one new cases of cancer are diagnosed in South Australia every day.

This Plan outlines Cancer Council SA’s five-year strategy, which is designed to drive ambitious outcomes in the lead up to our 100-year anniversary in 2028. At the centre of our Strategic Plan is our purpose: to reduce the rate and impact of cancer through best practice prevention, research and support.

We are committed to adapting our organisation to continue to meet the needs of people impacted by cancer, embrace technology and build new, meaningful partnerships with other organisations that share our values and strategic direction.  We are focused on maintaining our trusted place in the South Australian community as a charity of choice, and we are committed to expanding our reach to support all South Australians impacted by cancer.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Cancer Council SA is committed to advocating for policy and law changes, at both the state and federal level, where evidence indicates these changes can prevent cancer at both a population and individual level. Our organisation is dedicated to expanding access to prevention programs and services over the next five years through placing a greater emphasis on inclusivity and accessibility for all South Australians, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, culturally and linguistically diverse and remote communities.
