Volunteers most of them are also our Cancer Champions provide the perfect complement to our services. They bring varied skills, experiences and ideas to our organisation and help to enhance and benefit the support we can provide to our service users. Your involvement is at the heart of our work in supporting people affected by cancer, their families and support network.

Fundraise for us

Our fundraisers are inspirational and have completed a vast range of challenges to raise vital money to support the work of Family Unit Trust. There are many sporting events taking place all over the country this year, so why not raise funds for Family Unit Trust by signing up for a local race or challenge?

We are also able to support your event on Social Media. Taking on a challenge or run is a great way to help change a person’s life while staying fit and having fun. We can provide you with Sponsorship Forms or you can set up an online donation page.

Corporate Sponsorship

There are many ways you can help, no matter how big or small your company. We can provide our donors with regular updates on projects, which can be shared with employees, customers and suppliers.

Fundraising days are an enjoyable way to get your team together and support people affected by cancer. Raffles, bake sales and dress down days are ways to get involved.


Having a steady and reliable income is essential for us to respond quickly when we need to, and it means we can provide invaluable support to people affected by cancer when they need it most.

We welcome gifts of any size, either single or monthly. It is our promise to you as a donor to be excellent stewards of your gifts, while keeping overhead costs at a minimum.

Cancer Impact in BME Communities

Lower cancer awareness

Lower cancer awareness levels and lower levels of take up for screening services by BME communities is leading to both more advanced disease and poorer survival levels.

Worse prognosis

Cancer patients known to be black were diagnosed with breast cancers with a worse prognosis than those in other ethnic groups. Their breast tumours were significantly larger, of higher grade, more likely to be node positive.

Unmet cancer information provision

BME communities have unmet need relating to the provision of cancer information. This has resulted in lower awareness of cancer risk factors, signs and symptoms and cancer services among BME communities.
