Registered Charity No: 1000739 (England & Wales).

World Cancer Research Fund is dedicated to
preventing cancer.

We fund the most authoritative scientific research from around the world on cancer prevention and survival through diet, weight and physical activity.

Our research shows that a third of cases of the most common cancers in the UK could be prevented. That’s around 80,000 cancer cases every year that could be prevented though simple healthy lifestyle choices.

Our health information translates the scientific findings into clear information and advice for adults and children on how to reduce their chances of developing cancer.

We also also fund pioneering research projects aimed at giving people who’ve had cancer better information about how they can improve their quality of life, and help prevent cancer recurring.

By spreading the good news that cancer can be prevented, we hope many thousands of lives will be saved.


We receive no government funding and so this cutting-edge research and innovative work is only possible through the generosity of people like you, especially from gifts in Wills.

If cancer prevention really matters to you, please consider a gift to World Cancer Research Fund in your Will, once you’ve taken care of your loved ones. What better legacy to leave future generations than the best chance of a healthy life free from cancer.
