About us

Target Ovarian Cancer is the UK's leading ovarian cancer charity. Find out how we're working to improve early diagnosis, fund life-saving research and provide much-needed support to women.

We're the only ovarian cancer charity working across all four nations of the UK. We work with women, family members and health professionals to ensure we target the areas that matter most for those living with ovarian cancer.

Early diagnosis

We've been at the forefront of early diagnosis in ovarian cancer for a decade. This year we helped 931,269 people learn the symptoms of ovarian cancer with our national campaigning.

Research

Since 2008, we've funded over £1.25m in gold-standard ovarian cancer research projects across the UK. Together with leading experts, we're ensuring that research into ovarian cancer treatment and diagnosis benefits the largest proportion of women with ovarian cancer in the shortest timeframe.

Support

We believe fundamentally that every woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer should receive the right support at the right time, in the way that is right for her. Over 30,000 people used our award-winning ovarian cancer information every month in 2018-19.
