Provides the independent voice of people affected by cancer in NSW, working to improve the cancer experience of the 50,000 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.

Cancer Voices NSW
What we do
Nothing about us without us
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.
Cancer Voices NSW is engaged in a number of campaigns and projects aimed at improving the essentials of the cancer experience. We do this by working in partnership with, and influencing, key stakeholders and decision-makers.
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.
Cancer Voices provides a free service to connect consumers and researchers across a range of research activities.
