Dimbleby Cancer Care provides practical and psychological support for people living with cancer, their families and carers. The charity was set up in 1966 in memory of renowned broadcaster Richard Dimbleby and is based at Guy’s Cancer Centre, London. Its mission is to help make life better for people facing cancer in the UK today.
By 2020, one in two people in the UK will have had cancer in their lifetime. While many more people can now live with and beyond cancer, it remains difficult for patients, friends and family, carers and clinicians to find out about local organisations that can support the health and well-being of those living with cancer. cancercaremap.org is our response to that challenge.
Launched by Dimbleby Cancer Care in February 2018, cancercaremap.org is an online directory putting you in touch with the care and support services available to you in your area to help you during and beyond cancer treatment.
There are lots of ways you can get involved. Whatever you do, you will be helping us make life better for people living in the UK today. We are a very small team based in London and as well as donations, we are always looking for Volunteers to help us with our Events and Collection days, and to take on fundraising challenges.
