Upon successful completion, Cancer Council ACT can confidently renew your service’s nationally recognised SunSmart status for another 3 years. It is recommended that the Director, or equivalent, completes this form. Please note that you should  receive a confirmation email from Cancer Council upon completion, if you do not please contact the SunSmart Services Coordinator on 6257 9999 or email.   

Please note that your service's national SunSmart status (which may include a photo) is displayed on Cancer Council ACT's website in acknowledgment of its efforts and contribution in combating skin cancer in the Canberra region (click on SunSmart status link below).  If you do not wish for your service's SunSmart status to be displayed please contact Cancer Council ACT's SunSmart Services Coordinator.

There are several important steps to renewing your service’s national SunSmart membership for another 3 years:
