We provide financial assistance for Dorset families affected by cancer

A passion for cancer care in Dorset. We’re here to help.

Dorset Cancer Care Foundation exists to provide financial assistance to families affected by cancer in Dorset.  By the provision of financial awards, we provide practical support to aid with the recovery and treatment that patients need, when traditional care may be insufficient. The foundation also supports and works with other Dorset based cancer groups, organisations, hospices and hospitals to assist with projects, purchase of equipment and/or research.

We do not seek to replace existing mechanisms but to complement them.

The Foundation is registered with the Charity Commission. As a non-profit making organisation, all net proceeds are used to finance the awards which are applied for through the website.  Our Awards Team comprises three Trustees and meets regularly to review applications.
