What we do

Cancer Voices NSW provides the independent voice of people affected by cancer in NSW, working to improve the cancer experience of the 53,000 people who, according to official projections, will be diagnosed in our state each year. Established in 2000, we focus on the areas of prevention, diagnosis, information, treatment, research, support and care, survivorship and policy. To achieve this we work in partnership with decision makers and providers of these services, ensuring the patient perspective is heard from planning to delivery.

The independent voice of people affected by cancer

Cancer Voices members include people with cancer and cancer survivors, carers, cancer care professionals and interested organisations.



Our work in support of those affected by cancer provides broad, informed views on cancer issues at local, state and national levels – wherever decisions about us are made.

Consumer Representation

Cancer Voices NSW consumer representatives contribute to cancer and health related decision-making by representing the needs and issues of people affected by cancer on a wide range of committees, boards and panels.

Consumer Involvement in Research

Cancer Voices NSW consumers partner with researchers to ensure the community and consumer voice is considered in all research projects and grant applications.
