Macmillan Cancer Support

Cancer can leave you facing many challenges, from coping with your cancer care, to finding the help you need or planning a holiday after a diagnosis. At our local information and support centres, you'll find a team of experts and trained volunteers on hand to answer your questions. They aim to give you a ‘time away’ from the cancer clinic, where you can find a listening ear and information on everything from local support groups to help for the financial problems cancer may create.

You can access booklets, leaflets and other sources of information free of charge. Some centres offer services such as counseling, complementary therapy or support to deal with issues such as hair loss. They may also run courses to support you following cancer treatment.

You don't need an appointment to speak to or visit our centres and you're welcome whether you have a cancer diagnosis, are worried about cancer or are visiting on behalf of a friend or relative.

If you are in need of local support please call:
