Harnessing Collective Impact to accelerate outcomes
The VCCC Alliance is Australia’s first comprehensive cancer centre, providing a multi-site, multidisciplinary, integrated approach to cancer research, education and clinical care to improve outcomes for people affected by cancer.
As a Collective Impact organisation, the fundamental premise is that collaborating organisations with a shared agenda will deliver far greater benefits more quickly, than an individual organisation could achieve alone. Effective inclusion of consumer perspectives is a critical factor in this approach to tackling complex, system level change.
Following an extensive consultation process in 2019, the VCCC Alliance adopted a new strategic direction aimed at expanding the impact of the alliance and ensuring that the benefits reach more people affected by cancer in Victoria and beyond.

In 2016, the Victorian Government allocated $30 million over three years to the VCCC Alliance to develop a Strategic Research Plan (SRP) addressing key opportunities for improvement in cancer research capability, development of clinical trials, workforce development and leadership.
This was shaped by the VCCC Alliance Strategic Plan 2016-20 which set goals for effective sharing of clinical and research data, to support better, more integrated research and clinical care.
In 2020, the Victorian Government invested a further $27 million in the VCCC Alliance to build on the achievements to date. This has enabled the development of a comprehensive strategic roadmap, aligned with the State Government’s Victorian Cancer Plan, to accelerate progress in key areas. The VCCC Alliance Strategic Program Plan 2021-24 is an ambitious, integrated plan that systematically addresses some complex issues and challenges with the enduring aim of improving outcomes for people affected by cancer.
