Grants to improve support for people affected by cancer

Date posted: 7 March 2018

Cancer Australia will provide funding towards supporting young people affected by cancer and their families, older Australians and people from culturally diverse backgrounds. Cancer Australia has announced $391,000 will be put toward grant funding to the successful recipients of its 2018 supporting people with cancer grant initiative. The initiative encourages effective coordination between organisations to increase quality support for people affected by cancer.

Cancer Australia CEO, Dr Helen Zorbas said, 'Cancer Australia has invested more than $8.4 million in the supporting people with cancer grant initiative since it was established, and it has also attracted almost $6 million in co-contributions from organisations focused on improving outcomes for people with cancer, families and their communities. This year's funding will target priority groups, including older Australians, younger people affected by cancer, and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds'.
