Cancer support services
Cancer Council Victoria is committed to improving access for LGBTIQ+ communities to cancer information, support and QUIT telephone support services. We are an inclusive organisation and we seek to provide a supportive, accessible service to all members of the community.
LGBTIQ+ people diagnosed with cancer can have unique issues and concerns. Our 13 11 20 cancer nurses have undergone specific training to ensure that all people affected by cancer get access to the appropriate, sensitive support that they need.
If you need cancer information and support, contact our cancer nurses on 13 11 20 or contact us online.
