Victorian Cancer Plan 2020-24

Thank you to all who have participated in Cancer Council Victoria’s consultation activities to inform cancer plan submission.

Over the past few months, we have consulted with over 600 clinicians, researchers and community members directly or indirectly affected by cancer.

Your feedback has been invaluable and we are now in the process of preparing our independent submission to the Victorian Government for the next Victorian Cancer Plan 2020-24. Once this report has been submitted later this year, we will share it on this website.  

Victorian Government consultation sessions now open  

The Government has recently announced its own consultation schedule for the next Victorian Cancer Plan. It comprises of face to face events around Victoria and online consultation through their Engage Victoria platform. This consultation serves as a fantastic opportunity to amplify themes and priorities raised through our own consultations directly to the Victorian Government and we encourage everyone to participate in them.

Once again, we thank you for contributing to Cancer Council Victoria’s consultation process. We’re committed to advocating for changes to improve cancer outcomes for all Victorians, not only through this report, but well beyond.
