How we spend your money

SUPPORTING MEN

This year, our services have helped support more men than ever before, with calls to our helpline increasing by nearly 50%. We’ve branched out into local communities with greater levels of one-to-one and group support; piloted engagement events with our African/African Caribbean programme, and even taken our services on the road with Tenovus and Movember Foundation through the ManVan project.

Working to improve support for men from within and without, we’ve also increased our work with the NHS this year. We have funded 42 health professional roles of which 23 are already in post and are working within the NHS on projects to benefit men, and we’ve agreed £4m investment in projects aimed at redesigning services to help improve the care pathway for men with prostate cancer.

FINDING ANSWERS

With the continued support of Movember Foundation, we’ve funded an £11.8m investment in prostate cancer research. We’ve launched two Centres of Excellence in the UK to bring leading researchers together in the search for answers, 13 Project Grants and Pilot Awards (eight of which focus on telling aggressive from non-aggressive cancer) and ten Fellowships.

LEADING CHANGE

In January 2014 we launched our new campaign Men United v Prostate Cancer. A call to arms, Men United was conceived as a movement for men and a focal point to come together and unite against prostate cancer. The Men United campaign has been very successful. Over 100,000 people have joined Men United in less than three months, and more than 160,000 men and women have taken our online awareness test. We reached millions of people – including men at risk of the disease – across the UK.

But Men United is much more than an awareness campaign or fundraising drive, it’s the banner under which we will operate for the foreseeable future. Everyone who helps us is part of Men United.
