We are Australia’s leading cancer charity, working across every area of every cancer.
We believe in a cancer free future. Every year in NSW alone, almost 48,000 people will hear the words “you have cancer”.
Every day, we:
- Support families affected by cancer
- Speak out on behalf of the community
- Empower people to reduce their cancer risk
- Find new and better ways to detect and treat cancer
Cancer Council NSW aims to improve the way the LGBTQIA+ communities access support services for people affected by cancer.
We understand that LGBTQIA+ people diagnosed with cancer have unique issues and concerns, and our support services are committed to meeting these needs in a sensitive way. The first step is to ensure there is fairer access to health services and improved health outcomes for LGBTQI communities across NSW.
