Cancer Society Wellington is an independent charity and community funded. Our unique combination of local programme delivery, community engagement and national influence enables everyone who cares about cancer to make the biggest possible difference.

Together with our volunteers, supporters, stakeholders and staff, we are committed to reducing the impact of cancer on individuals and the community. We work across every area of every cancer:

  • conducting and funding world-class research that underpins our work in preventing cancer
  • supporting people as they navigate the cancer journey
  • advocating to ensure that governments take action on cancer

We are there not only for those touched by cancer today, but to prevent and manage cancer into the future.
