Together we can find and fund the bold ideas that will one day cure cancer.
We are a charity which funds research into any type of cancer anywhere in the world.
We fund projects in the world’s best research institutions. We fund some of the world’s most diverse and unexpected projects. We fund world-renowned specialists and up and coming talent. We do all those things for one very good reason - to gain a global perspective. Because research doesn’t happen in isolation. The answers will not come from one scientist, in one lab, in one country.
This worldwide research will enhance our understanding of cancer and help us find and develop better, more effective treatments. Treatments personalised to your unique needs. Treatments you, your family or your family’s family may rely on in the future.
To realise our vision of no life cut short by cancer the research can never stop. Join our team today to keep it going.

We are the UK’s leading veterinary charity – saving and protecting pets is what we’re all about.
Every year, PDSA saves the lives of hundreds of thousands of pets when their owners have nowhere else to turn. Whether it’s a single parent, someone with a disability or an elderly person living on their own, we help people from all lifestyles by tackling poverty in a unique way.
Yet our work goes beyond caring for pets when they’re sick; we’re working to prevent this from happening in the first place. With 48 Pet Hospitals across the UK, veterinary expertise is at the core of what we do and we’re dedicated to educating present and future owners on all aspects of pet ownership.
We touch the lives of more pets and their owners than any other animal charity in the UK today, and we’ve been doing this for 100 years. In that time we have provided a staggering 100 million free treatments to more than 20 million pets.
We’re a lifeline for sick and injured pets, and yet we receive no HM Government funding for our life-saving work. We can’t do it without you.

It’s time to support children in the UK who feel scared, unloved and unable to cope.
Right now, in Britain today, there are children and young people who feel scared, unloved and unable to cope. They feel alone in the world, like they just don’t matter. This is a lonely place for them, where it is easy to feel overwhelmed.
These are the children and young people we work with, step-by-step, for as long as it takes, making small changes that make a big difference.
We listen. We support. We act.
Last year we worked directly with more than 13,000 vulnerable children and young people, and helped change laws to improve life for millions more.
There are no simple answers to tackling the problems young people today are facing. Often it is complex and we can’t do it alone. This is why we work with politicians, policy makers and other organisations to come together, to help tackle them.
Only together can we make a difference, not just to individual lives, but to the lives of millions of children both now and in the future.
Because no child should feel alone.
