Stay safe in the sun with our free app

Did you know that Queensland has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world?

Each year in Queensland around 324,000 non-melanoma skin cancers and 3700 skin cancers are diagnosed each year.

Thanks to your support, every day our education and prevention programs are helping Queensland families lower their cancer risk. Our nutrition and exercise education campaigns are inspiring Aussie families to lead a healthy lifestyle, and for the past 20 years, our SunSmart Schools program has empowered a generation of Queensland kids and their families to protect themselves from UV. The program currently protects 48,500 children against the Queensland sun in childcare centres and schools across the state thanks to donations from people like you.

Sun protection is required when the UV Index is three or above – and we see the UV Index far exceed that even in winter here in Queensland.

Once skin damage occurs from UV radiation, it is impossible to reverse, but it’s never too late to make improvements to your sun protection behaviours.
With our free SunSmart app you can check the UV levels and stay protected all year round.
