Get A-Head has awarded £10m in grants since it was formed just over 29 years ago.
We fund vital research into the causes and treatments of head and neck cancers, pioneering surgical equipment to help patients get the best outcomes possible, life-changing equipment to help patients live a better life with and after cancer, complementary therapies to ease the side effects of cancer treatments, and education and professional development for those working in the sector.
Get A-Head has paid for everything from research into the genetics of very rare cancers to voice synthesiser technology for people who have lost the ability to speak because of cancer.
Our mission is to do what we can to help researchers learn about and find treatments for people with head and neck cancers, and to help patients and those working with them to enjoy the best quality of life possible.
Get A Head relies completely on donations
