Who we are

Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer have joined together to stop bowel cancer. We are determined to save lives, improve the quality of life and support all those affected by bowel cancer in the UK.

Our pledge is bold, ambitious and inspiring. Within ten years:

  • We will transform survival rates, from only one in every two people surviving bowel cancer over five years, to three out of four people surviving
  • There will be better information and support for every patient throughout their journey
  • Screening will be optimal, leading to more cancers being detected early or prevented


Our vision is that by 2050 no one will die from bowel cancer.
