Trusts and Foundations

Helping to create a better future for men and their families

Our research is supported by a number of Trusts and Foundations that enable us to focus on the development of vital treatments for advanced prostate cancer.

By partnering with Prostate Cancer Research Centre, you can help us to increase our impact either by funding a specific research project or supporting our core costs.

Why support research into advanced prostate cancer?

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. The challenge facing us:

80% of men

have cancerous cells in their prostate by the age of 80

45,000 men

are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year in the UK

12,000 men

of those diagnosed will die from the disease

Advanced prostate cancer has no cure

Whilst prostate cancer is curable when it is localised within the prostate, it becomes incurable, life-limiting and potentially terminal when cancerous cells spread around the body. This is called ‘advanced prostate cancer’ and the spread of cancerous cells outside of the prostate makes all the difference between success and failure in its treatment.

About Prostate Cancer Research Centre

Prostate Cancer Research Centre is the only charity that focuses solely on the advanced stage of prostate cancer, which causes the majority of prostate cancer deaths and for which treatments are currently limited.

Our vision is to provide a future for men and their families affected by prostate cancer. We aim to achieve this through our mission of utilising pioneering research into effective treatments that: increase survival rates; reduce morbidity; and, improve quality of life for men with life-threatening prostate cancer.

We are focused on turning hope into reality by taking our four innovative research projects from testing in the laboratory to clinical trials in men; essential to developing treatments which mean fewer men will suffer and die from the disease. Within the next year, we will plan to fund a further three new projects, with the potential to create breakthrough treatments for men living with prostate cancer.
