Bowel Cancer UK is the UK’s leading bowel cancer charity. We’re determined to save lives and improve the quality of life of everyone affected by bowel cancer. Our vision is a future where nobody dies of bowel cancer.
Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK, every 15 minutes someone is diagnosed with the disease. It’s also the UK’s second biggest cancer killer. However it shouldn’t be. It’s treatable and curable especially if diagnosed early.
We support and fund targeted research, provide expert information and support to patients and their families, educate the public and professionals about the disease and campaign for early diagnosis and access to best treatment and care.
We employ around 60 staff based at offices in England, Scotland and Wales and home-based staff in Northern Ireland.
