Cancer advocacy

Keeping cancer on the Government's agenda and lobbying on behalf of cancer patients and their loved ones

We work with cancer patients and their loved ones to make sure their voices are heard at all levels of Government. We work to keep cancer on the Government's agenda so that fewer people get cancer and that those who do get the best possible treatments and life after treatment. Read more about what is cancer advocacy.

Returning to work after a cancer diagnosis

Those who have or have had cancer can encounter significant barriers when seeking to return to work.

The Irish Cancer Society has funded the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) to conduct research, which seeks to understand the barriers and facilitators to returning to work after a cancer diagnosis.

Please join us on Tuesday 16th February 2021 as we discuss the report's findings and reflect on opportunities for Government, employers and others.
