We know that walking through the doors of the Cancer Centre can be daunting, but we're here to make sure you and your family get the best care possible.

Our work focuses on three key areas - clinical care, patient comfort and care, and research - and the projects that we fund are in addition to the services provided by the Health Service.  In the last year the charity has invested £1.4 million into local cancer services through the life-saving and life-changing projects we support. 

If you would like information on different cancer types, treatments and support services available locally, visit the Belfast Trust Cancer Services website here.

How we work

Step 1

When you make a donation your money goes into a big pot.

Step 2

Staff in the Cancer Centre tell us what they need to help patients and submit an application for funding.

Step 3

Our expert board assess each application based on its potential benefit to patients and staff.

Step 4

Approved applications are funded using your money.

Step 5

These projects then directly benefit you, your family and friends affected by cancer.
