How much is spent on cancer research in the UK? The amount we spend varies year to year as we don’t allocate all our resources ahead of time. In 2021/22, we committed £443m to cancer research that will fund new projects that will run for many years. During the year, we spent £388m on ongoing research activity, including projects started in previous years.

Does the UK Government contribute to cancer research? Cancer Research UK receives no Government funding for our research, but our work does not take place in isolation. We need research in universities and the NHS to be world-class so that we can fund the best science and find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
How is Cancer Research UK funded? How does Cancer Research UK raise funds? Cancer Research UK relies on the generosity of the public to fund its life-saving research and it needs support more now than ever. We raise funds through donations, gifts in Wills, community fundraising and events, corporate partnerships, and our retail chain of over 600 shops.
