Cancer Force

FORCE (Friends of the Oncology and Radiotherapy Centre, Exeter) became a charity in 1987 and has grown steadily ever since. In 2004 we opened a purpose-built Cancer Support and Information Centre, thanks to more than £900,000 raised by local people and the tireless work of the FORCE team. A £350,000 extension to the Centre was opened in 2012, allowing us to support even more people affected by cancer.

FORCE has never lost sight of its origins and core belief that people deserve the best possible support and treatment, face to face and close to home. In 2014 we began providing services in Tiverton and Okehampton and in 2018 extended that outreach programme to include Honiton. In 2020 our East Devon service moved to Ottery St Mary, when our partners in the Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust began to establish a new cancer hub in the town.

We have also funded the delivery of chemotherapy in those outreach locations by paying for the nurses who administer treatment.

We are committed to improving patient care by funding research and innovation too.
