Recent publicity surrounding governance at a major charity isn't good for the sector as a whole. The OPA takes governance and the advice of the Charity Commission very seriously. We are guided by the Charity Commission's Hallmarks and we follow their guidance on reserves very carefully to ensure that we have enough for a rainy day (and no more!). Our activities are guided by a development plan, our members are protected by a data security policy, and we have professionals running our office and fundraising. We are a small charity and we are lucky to have a great Committee with very experienced Trustees.

Welcome to the Oesophageal Patients Association

The OPA is a caring organisation providing good quality information for patients, their carers and family affected by oesophageal or gastric cancers. At whatever stage of your illness - recently diagnosed or some years on, facing treatment by chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery or palliative care – we can help. We fully understand your worries and fears and can give the support you need in order to achieve the best possible quality of life.
