The Richard Dimbleby Cancer Fund (Cancer Care Map)
Who we are
Cancer Care Map was developed by cancer charity The Richard Dimbleby Cancer Fund which was established in 1966 following the death of Broadcaster Richard Dimbleby of testicular cancer the year before. For over 50 years the charity has been at the forefront of pioneering cancer care through its Research Fund and its work at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital.
Launched in 2018, Cancer Care Map is an online directory of cancer care services to help anyone affected by cancer anywhere in the UK. Collaborating with charities and service providers across the country, the information on Cancer Care Map is managed and updated by a small but dedicated team. We are also working closely with NHS England to ensure that anyone living with cancer in the UK is able to find the help and support they need in their local area.
The Richard Dimbleby Cancer Fund relies solely on public donations, grants and legacies to continue its work.
