We’re here for every South Australian

Supporting people affected by cancer is at the heart of everything we do. Across all stages of their experience—from hearing those three words, to coping with treatment, to life beyond cancer—our support services ensure no one ever has to go through their experience alone.

Year in review

Because of you, this year South Australians impacted by cancer were able to access trusted, evidence-based cancer information, free counselling, subsidised accommodation when they had to travel for treatment, childcare, and financial and legal aid to help plan for the costs of cancer.

Even during the COVID-19 Pandemic, support from the South Australian community enabled us to continue to offer services and supports to all South Australians impacted by cancer when they needed us most.
