Changing the conversation about work and cancer

Social Enterprise

Working With Cancer® is a Social Enterprise.

That means that the fees we charge commercial organisations subsidise our work for cancer charities and for individuals seeking coaching or advice who refer themselves to us without a company’s sponsorship. Those in financial need are eligible for free support. Any profits we make are ploughed back into the business. 

The majority of WWC’s funding comes from the fees charged to commercial organisations or donations made directly or indirectly to the Company. WWC is a Company Limited by Guarantee and registered in the UK.

Donations can be made to WWC using the “Donation” button below. Simply enter the amount you would like to donate and click the button to enter payment details. Your donation will be used to pay for three free coaching sessions for cancer survivors who are looking for work and in financial need and also to help fund the workshops we run for some of the UK’s leading cancer charities on how to manage work and cancer.
