Who we are:
Every year, almost 30,000 Victorians will be diagnosed with cancer, and 11,000 will die from cancer. The number of cases will increase as our population grows and ages. Survival will also improve as we get better at early detection and treatment of cancer. Since our establishment in 1937, Cancer Council Victoria has developed an international reputation for our innovative work in cancer research, prevention and support. As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we play a leading role in reducing the impact of all cancers on all people.
Type of knowledge or skills needed:
Volunteers are vital to our organisation. Most of our volunteers are drawn to working with us because of a strong sense of wanting to give their time, energy and skills to a good cause.

Our volunteers donate their time to help us fundraise, work at our events or in various roles in our offices.
