About the organisation

There are around 600,000 people working with cancer in the UK. This number is expected to double over the next 10 to 15 years. For those affected by cancer, work is important. A job can restore a sense of normality and wellbeing as well contributing to financial independence, but many cancer survivors find returning to work a struggle as they deal with cancer’s short or longer term side effects. We help both employees and employers to manage cancer and work. We advise employers on how to successfully manage cancer in the workplace, and we advise individuals affected by cancer on returning to work, remaining in work or finding employment at any stage during or after cancer treatment.
