Our funds are used, in the main, for education for members, including study days and the VOICE course, and attending conferences and meetings. We have been fortunate in that so far all our
speakers and meeting organisers have donated their time and the costs incurred were put to ensuring volunteers are able to attend.
Our income since we began has come from a variety of sources, including pharmaceutical companies (35%), members’ fundraising (13%), health charities (20%) academia (19%),and fees charged (7%). We are aware that we need to remain independent of pharmaceutical companies. However, it is in the interest of all cancer patients that effective drugs are developed, and we feel that donations from pharmaceutical companies are therefore appropriate.
We believe that it is important for researchers to budget for lay input to new trials when making funding applications and we aim to recoup some of our costs in this way; this is needed to enable the participation of some members.
Members and trustees receive no payment from ICPV, except travel expenses and generously donate their time and expertise.
