Changing the conversation about work and cancer

What We Do

For employers

Every two minutes someone is diagnosed with cancer and you can expect the incidence of cancer in the workplace to increase. It’s essential that you and your managers are knowledgeable, equipped, and ready to respond.

One in two of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime but the good news is that more and more of us are surviving and living with cancer for many years. 

Being able to work is something that most cancer survivors want to do for many reasons, not least because it provides financial independence, but mainly because it provides a sense of normality. Cancer survivors and working carers are also protected against discrimination in the workplace and the former must be offered reasonable adjustments to return to work.
