What we do

We help ease the burden of cancer for country families throughout NSW.

How we Assist

A vast network of local volunteer branches that collaborate with health professionals.

Why we Assist

To lessen the inequities distance creates in cancer care and treatment for rural communities.

No matter the distance, assistance is never far away.

We Can Assist

Can Assist is committed to ensuring that all people, regardless of where they live in NSW, have equitable access to cancer treatment and care. By providing financial assistance, practical support and raising awareness of the inequities, our volunteer network ensures that country people are given the same opportunities and treatment choices as those who live in city centres.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our grass roots organisation.

How you can assist

Today, Can Assist has more than 2700 volunteers and over 50 branches that are committed to making the journey with cancer easier for all rural and regional NSW communities. Ensure our charitable organisation continues to grow by joining our team of men and women across the state who selflessly give their time and effort to assist.

Our stories of Anna, Leonie, Luke and little Tommy all demonstrate that for those who live in remote rural areas, a cancer diagnosis isn’t just a health challenge, it’s often a logistical nightmare. The distance between these patients and the care they need adds extra costs and planning to an already stressful time.

Can Assist alleviates some of this stress, - by registering for the CAN DO Challenge this October you can help yourself and Can Assist.
