Welcome to Cancer Council ACT

Cancer Council ACT
is a non government Not-For-Profit community organisation that aims to promote a healthier community by reducing the incidence and impact of cancer in the ACT region. The Council depends largely on the generosity of the ACT and surrounding community providing donations and supporting fundraising initiatives.

Cancer Council ACT no longer operates a sun protection retail outlet at Fairbairn. To purchase high quality and affordable Cancer Council sun protection products visit our online shop or phone 1300 354 144 (Mon-Fri 9am - 5pm).  

New local Health and Wellbeing website launched to assist ACT teachers and educators.
