Vision, values and aims


Tenovus Cancer Care’s aims are simple: to help prevent, treat and find a cure for cancer.

It does this by offering support, advice and treatment to cancer patients and their families, by promoting healthy lifestyles and funding cancer research to find new ways to prevent it, diagnose it, and treat it - right at the heart of the community. 


Tenovus Cancer Care’s vision is a future where fewer people get cancer, and for those that do to provide equal access to the best treatment and support.


To bring practical advice, emotional support and treatment to where it matters most; the heart of the community. To help people with cancer and their loved ones cope, and through vital research, offer hope.


We will use the power of our people to reach new heights and work towards a time where no one dies of cancer.

Strategic aims

To deliver this vision, Tenovus Cancer Care have agreed a set of 5 strategic aims for the organisation for the next 3 years (2019-2022). They are:

1. To provide support and treatment to people with cancer and their loved ones, closer to home in unique ways.
2. To represent the needs of people with cancer and their loved ones.
3. To conduct and fund research to improve cancer outcomes and experiences.
4. To work with communities to promote the importance of healthy lifestyles and early diagnosis.
5. To develop a committed and engaged team that manages their resources effectively to support this work.

The future

Despite our achievements, there is still more to be done. Our vision is a future where fewer people get cancer, and those that do have equal access to the best treatment and support.

As well as developing our charitable activities, we will undertake organisational projects that indirectly support our strategic aims and help us to work more effectively.

► We'll shout louder to represent the voice of people affected by cancer

► We'll reach more people, in more communities with healthy lifestyle campaigns and programmes

► We'll invest in our people, their development and our systems. We'll streamline our activities and focus on sustainable, long-term income to safeguard our future
