We have three key objectives:
- To support people who work in the construction and built environment sector who face the challenge of dealing with cancer in their lives.
- To fund research which can help accelerate improvements in the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer.
- To promote health and wellbeing in the construction and built environment sector in order to help reduce the risk of people developing cancer in the first place.
With more than 3 million people working in the Construction and Built Environment sector, if we all give a little we can help to accelerate improvements in cancer survival, and help build a future where more people beat cancer.
Read on to understand why We Build The Future matters.
Providing information and support
Whether someone is worried about cancer, dealing with diagnosis and treatment or supporting a relative, friend or colleague, they shouldn’t have to stand alone.
We Build The Future works to provide access to the right information to ensure that people in the Construction and Built Environment Sector get the answers they need. To do this, we raise funds so that we can partner with specialist organisations such as Cancer Research UK, who provide outreach and education programmes to improve cancer awareness, help people know how to reduce the risk of cancer and aid early diagnosis.
Our aim in the future is also to develop programmes that provide more direct support through industry partners such as the Lighthouse Club.
Raising money to beat cancer
1 in 2 people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime.
Cancer survival has improved but there is still much more to be done to help more people beat cancer sooner. That is why we need the support of people and businesses across the construction and built environment sector to help raise funds to improve prevention, detection and treatments for all types of cancer.
With your help we can accelerate progress and help build a future where more and more people can expect to survive cancer – learn more .
Promoting health and wellbeing
Taking steps to help prevent cancer.
Early diagnosis and better treatments are critical in helping more people beat cancer. But alongside this, there are steps we can take to reduce the risk of developing cancer in the first place.
We Build The Future works through its own campaigns and partner organisations to help people lead healthier lives and supports business in improving the health and wellbeing of their staff.
