Make a difference

The Irish Cancer Society is dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by cancer but achieving this goal is only possible with support from volunteers and donations.

If you would like to support the charity here are some of the ways you can get involved:

Fundraising and donations

You don't have to run a marathon to raise funds, there are numerous ways to be a fundraiser, like getting behind Daffodil Day, the charity's biggest fundraising initiative. Local Boots stores also hold fundraising events throughout the year.

You can also give money in a number of other ways, like:

  • Making a one-off donation online
  • Setting up a direct debit
  • Leaving a legacy

The Irish Cancer Society is 95% volunteer funded


Volunteers make it possible for the Irish Cancer Society to carry out life-saving work. Even if you can only spare a few hours your support is valued.

As a volunteer you can help by:

  • Providing practical support and information at one of the charity's Daffodil Centres in hospitals across the country
  • Driving cancer patients to hospital while they undergo chemotherapy
  • Helping out at an Irish Cancer Society office or shop

Survivors Supporting Survivors

If you have had cancer you can join a programme to give one-to-one support to someone who is newly diagnosed with the disease.

You'll get all the training you need to give others much needed emotional and practical support.


Campaigning is key to helping us achieve our vision of a future without cancer. The charity aims to influence governments and state agencies making policy decisions which impact people affected by cancer.

They're currently campaigning about sunbed legislation, tobacco and cancer screening.
