Communities Against Cancer – Funding opportunity

Communities Against Cancer is a new grant scheme aimed at helping people to reduce their risk of cancer, be aware of the signs and symptoms of cancer, and seek help at an earlier stage.

The project aims to benefit people who are less likely to know how to look after their health or are less able to do so. You don't need to be knowledgeable about cancer to apply for a grant, as we will provide Cancer Champion training.

We are offering small and large grants to help organisations and individuals join us on this mission.

Our Advice

“Social enterprises trade to tackle social problems, improve communities, people’s life chances, or the environment. They make their money from selling goods and services in the open market, but they reinvest their profits back into the business or the local community. And so when they profit, society profits.” Social Enterprise UK
