About the organisation
We are a relatively young charity that supports a strong, caring and mutually-supportive community. We are staffed by a growing team managed by a board of trustees (comprising a balanced mix of those with personal experience of sarcoma and those that don’t), and supported by experts in the sarcoma field.
Sarcoma UK was founded by Roger Wilson CBE, a sarcoma patient.
We receive no government funding and rely solely on generous voluntary donations and the energy and imagination of our tireless fundraisers.
We keep our administration and running costs to a minimum which means that more of your money goes directly to funding vital research.
Sarcoma can affect anyone. That’s why we fund vital research, campaigns for better treatments and offers of support for everyone. We know that we have more work to do to make Sarcoma UK more representative of all the people affected by sarcoma. That’s why we want to hear from you whatever your gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, neurodiversity, disability status, economic background or any other aspect which makes you unique.
Being part of Sarcoma UK means that your uniqueness will help bring about a world where fewer people are affected by sarcoma. And that’s a win for everyone.
We’re bringing about change. Join us in doing that.
