As we go about our daily lives, we hear about many different forms of poverty. But we rarely hear discussions about cancer poverty.

Our aim is to make a change within the cancer sector and support as many people as possible living with cancer — ensuring everyone who’s diagnosed with cancer in the UK hears about SimPal’s support and is given the chance to use our unique services.

People aren’t just a number, which is why we take a personal approach to cancer support, processing all applications based on each individual’s requirements.

I always knew there was room for change within this sector, it was just a matter of time finding the right people to make it happen.

SimPal wouldn’t exist without the wonderful volunteers behind it, who continuously work to drive the charity forward. Our team is dedicated to supporting some of the most vulnerable people in society, drawing on their own experiences and skills in different areas to offer personal support and practical solutions that ensure those living with cancer are able to access the support they require.


Blair Papworth
Co-Founder, CEO & SimPal Trustee

I always knew there was room for change within this sector; it was just a matter of time finding the right people to make it happen.

Over the past eight years, I have had the honour to meet with such inspirational people who show immense strength and dignity in times of deep darkness. This alone has fuelled my passion and makes me even more determined than ever to continue to work hard changing lives for those living with and beyond cancer.


Chris Lewis
Co-Founder, COO and SimPal Trustee, CEO Chris’s Cancer Community 

It was my personal experience with cancer that encouraged me to help improve life for others living with cancer.

Mobile communication is vital to the way we all live and is no longer a luxury. Cancer can be a very lonely place, and our vision is to make it less so!


Steven Evans
Head of SimPal Customer Services

I oversee all applications and network connections at SimPal. I know what it’s like to be in a position where you’re constantly worrying about money.

People should not be put into a position where they have to choose between paying for travel costs for their hospital treatments or putting £10 on their mobile phone credit to keep them connected.


Zac Toumazi
SimPal Trustee

I am honoured to be SimPal’s first-ever ambassador and will do all I can to help this amazing charity make a difference by raising awareness engaging corporate partners and, indeed, anything that the charity needs.


Lee Perriam FCA

I have 25 years of industry experience as a chartered accountant prior to developing a successful accountancy practice in 2011.

I am proud to be associated with SimPal and am committed to drawing upon my experience to support the charity.
