Support from Trusts and Foundations

We are extremely grateful for all the support we have received over the years from Trusts and Foundations, both in the UK and from overseas. Support from Trusts and Foundations enables us to continue to fund our valuable work.

There are a number of ways to support us. Some foundations and charitable trusts work in partnership with us on particulars project while others may give unrestricted donations towards our core costs.
As an organisation we will continue to focus on the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and are committed to improving the survival rates of the disease. Working towards the day when everyone is diagnosed early and survives pancreatic cancer.
Please do get in touch if you are a trustee, or have a link with a Trust or Foundation who may be able to help us.

Current Projects

Research

We fund the Early Diagnosis Challenge Award, where we offer grants to UK based  post-doctoral researchers in the UK worth up to £40,000 per project. By seed funding innovative ideas we are looking for an early detection method to improve early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
We are working on a project to target at-risk groups who are more at risk of developing pancreatic cancer to ensure that they are receiving and responding to awareness materials.
We are looking to run a GP Audit to further research the link with Type 2 diabetes and pancreatic cancer.

Education

We provide e-learning for GP’s and Pharmacists to increase their knowledge about pancreatic cancer. We are currently looking to revise and update our e-learning module for hospital doctors accredited by the British Medical Journal.

Public Awareness Campaigns

Half of the pancreatic cancer patients have not heard of the disease before their own diagnosis. We provide awareness materials and create award winning campaigns to help raise awareness of the disease.
We are looking to continue our awareness campaigns targeting Wales in 2020. By targeting the public, GP’s and Pharmacists we can ensure that more people are aware of this disease leading to greater awareness and improved survival rates.
We would like to eventually cover the whole of the UK with an awareness campaign.
