Around 40% of the money raised by the Cancer Fund is invested in supporting staff through training and development, improving staff welfare and the working environment.

We are keen to hear about funding opportunities to improve cancer care, treatment, and the staff and patient experience within UCLH cancer services. Whether it's purchasing equipment, attending a training course or a conference, please share your ideas with us.

We encourage all staff within the cancer division at UCLH to submit funding applications.

We can fund the following:

  • Equipment (medical and non-medical), furnishings, refurbishments for staff and patient spaces, and any other items or projects that benefit patients and patient care which can’t be funded via other sources.
  • Research projects that seek to bring direct benefit to cancer patients, and will directly translate into service without requiring further research after the completed project. The applicants must seek approval and authorisation from all the relevant departments and governing bodies before applying.
  • Staff training, if it will enable improvements to patient care and experience or staff well-being.

Please support your charity

The Cancer Fund relies entirely on donations. The best way to help us continue improving our care services for our patients and your working environment is to get involved.

There are plenty of ways to help, whether it’s participating in an organised event, spreading the word about fundraising activities among your colleagues or supporting the families of patients who want to give something back.

Here are just a few ways you can show your support:

  • Let patients and families who want to give back know about our website, or request our newsletter
  • Take on a challenge event – take a look at our events page
  • Spread the word to our local community, including local businesses
  • Fundraise for us, host an event or open a Just Giving page
  • Wear the Cancer Fund brand - we have fleeces, badges, pens and lanyards available!
