About us

We are Queensland's leading non-government community organisation in cancer control.

We are committed to providing all Queenslanders with the best possible prospects of preventing, detecting, effectively treating and surviving a cancer diagnosis.

Our vision is for a cancer free Queensland.

This year, we will devote more than $24 million to cancer research and support services for Queenslanders affected by cancer.

With your support, we are creating hope for a cancer free future.

We were established in 1961 as the Queensland Cancer Fund, in response to an increasing need for cancer-related services across the state.

This year, we are celebrating 50 years of supporting Queenslanders affected by cancer.

Today, Cancer Council Queensland employs over 250 staff statewide, and relies on support from more than 2,500 registered volunteers. Our volunteers, supporters, and friends are essential to our work.

We have offices is in Brisbane, Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Maroochydore, Toowoomba, and the Gold Coast.

Cancer Council Queensland is a member of Cancer Council Australia and is affiliated with the International Union Against Cancer (UICC).

Thousands of Queenslanders donate and volunteer for us each day, helping us to improve cancer control.

Thank you for supporting our work.
