What we do

We are Prostate Cancer UK, and we’re on a mission to give every man the power to navigate this complex disease. We take the time to understand the individual needs of men to give them expert advice and support, so they can make informed choices. Whether they’re learning about their risk of prostate cancer or finding their way through it, we’re always on hand with the knowledge and experience men need to find the right path.

Prostate cancer is curable if caught early. That’s why we work across all communities to build a better understanding of prostate cancer. We’re investing millions in research to revolutionise testing, treatment and care. And we are blazing a trail to a screening programme that could save thousands of lives with regular, accurate tests for all men at risk.

We believe every man’s life is unique and remarkable. That’s why all of us at Prostate Cancer UK make every pound and minute spent, every conversation, and every idea contribute to a better world for men and those who love them. So no man is left behind.

Our Board

We are governed by a Board of Trustees composed of 13 members. Doris Olulode is our Chair of the Board of Trustees.

All members are elected for an initial term of three years. The maximum term is six years.
