As a charity, we've always been unabashed in our commitment to helping more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. To help achieve this and continue the progress we've made so far, we are moving our London office to Counting House in London Bridge on Tuesday 24 September 2013.
We have secured a 10-year lease on the new office, allowing us to extract the maximum value for money possible for a central London location. Although the charity is continuing to grow in terms of the number of staff we employ, we are in the process of changing the way we work to improve efficiency. Our new office in London Bridge is actually 12 per cent smaller than our current location and in 2013/14 86p of every £ we spend will be on charitable activity.
Moving our London office - one of seven offices located throughout the UK - to a central location within the capital city will allow us greater access to the individuals and organisations we need to influence and work with in order to achieve better and long lasting results for men. We'll be on the doorstep of the politicians we need to lobby, the health industry we must engage with, and the big corporate businesses and media outlets that we want to work with.
Our current location in Hammersmith has served us well, but with prostate cancer set to be the most common cancer by 2030, we need to ensure we put ourselves in the best location to help as many men as possible. Moving office is just one aspect of this, we are also committed to spending millions of pounds on targeted projects in research and service provision to help more men survive prostate cancer and have a better quality of life. Together, we can and will make a difference to men's health.
