Bowel Cancer UK

Bowel Cancer UK is the UK's leading bowel cancer research charity. For nearly 30 years we have been determined to save lives and improve the quality of life for all those affected by bowel cancer.

We support and enable research

The major advances in saving lives from bowel cancer in the past 20 years have all come through research. Through strategic investment in targeted research, we will deliver improvements in bowel cancer survival in our lifetime.

We aim to increase the number of people surviving bowel cancer within five years of diagnosis from 50% to 75% by 2025.

We campaign

Working in partnership with people affected by bowel cancer and the clinical and research community, we campaign for early diagnosis and access to best treatment and care across the UK.

We provide expert information and education

We educate patients, the public and professionals about bowel cancer by providing expert information and training. We do this through our website, a range of publications free to order and download and awareness talks in the community. We also run training for healthcare professionals to ensure they have the latest information regarding signs and symptoms, risk factors and the screening programme.

We fundraise to save lives

We are determined to save lives from bowel cancer but we can’t do this without you. Support vital research and lifesaving work to stop bowel cancer.
