What We Do

Prostate Cymru is the leading prostate health charity in Wales. Founded in 2003, the charity has grown from strength to strength over the last decade.

The charity has no national or government funding and relies on the kindness and generosity of its fundraisers and volunteers to fulfil its core aims:

1. Raising awareness about prostate cancer and prostate diseases, educating men in Wales about the diseases and their risk. Prostate cancer affects 1 in 8 men in Wales and the risk increases to 1 in 3 if there is a family history of the disease. Our awareness team provide free of charge workplace awareness sessions and talks to other groups.

2. Supporting treatments and improving equipment for prostate diseases. To date we have supported GreenLight Laser treatment for benign prostate disease and funded the training of surgeons using the Da Vinci robot for minimally invasive prostate cancer surgery.

3. Funding research and innovation across Wales to ensure that men in Wales suffering with prostate diseases will have access to the best available treatments from the NHS in Wales.

4. Supporting the education of medical professionals and students through online learning resources and travelling fellowships.
