One in three Victorians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. In Victoria alone, there are more than 35,500 new cases of cancer diagnosed each year.
We’re determined to change that, which is why we are working, every day, to get closer to a cancer free future.
As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we rely on the generosity of the community to help us prevent cancer, empower people and save lives.

Commonwealth Bank partnered with Cancer council to develop bespoke training for its people in hardship, vulnerability and complaint divisions of the bank. Through our partnership with Cancer Council, our people gained an in depth knowledge of effective and respective communication in the context of serious illness. The program took our understanding of serious illness to a much more nuanced level and gave our people tools which they could implement into their day jobs straight away, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Cancer Council on this project.
