Prostate Cancer Support Association (PSA) was set up by a small group of prostate cancer patients in 1995 and has developed into a national association of self-help and support groups. It is managed by and for men with prostate cancer, their families and those who are interested in improving the care and support of those affected by this form of cancer. Our services are free of charge to anyone and are funded entirely by membership subscriptions and donations. We receive no money whatsoever from government sources. We are a UK registered charity (No. 1067253).

UK Prostate Link provides a searchable database of quality-assessed links to prostate cancer information on the Internet. It is designed to serve as a "first port of call" for prostate cancer information. The site is pioneering a new approach to web portals, in which they directly assess the quality of the information they link to.

The National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) has a new campaign to empower patients be more active in managing their health. The Please Ask campaign provides practical, accessible information about patient safety and encourages patients to feel comfortable asking questions about their NHS healthcare and raising concerns with health professionals.
