We are Macmillan. Cancer Support
Allan Cowie, Macmillan General Manager for Scotland, says the scheme will make Glasgow, ‘one of the first places in the UK where everyone affected by cancer can get information and support in their local community.’ Macmillan hopes it will become a model for the rest of Scotland.
Trained volunteers will be at the heart of the partnership between Macmillan and Glasgow Life|, a body that runs the city’s libraries and museums. The volunteers will offer practical and emotional support to anyone affected by cancer. When appropriate, they will refer visitors to other Macmillan services. A Macmillan service delivery manager will lead each team. Cancer Support Scotland|, another service partner, will offer counselling and complementary therapies in some libraries.
The project is modelled on the Macmillan Information and Support Centre at Easterhouse Library in Glasgow, which was launched in 2009.
