Macmillan can provide speakers to talk about our work for people affected by cancer.
Macmillan speakers can present in assemblies and other school events, give hands-on support with fundraising or awareness events, and are involved in seeking ways to work with local schools and organisations.
As cancer and healthy lifestyle choices are relevant to a large number of subject areas, our speakers may be able to give short talks in a range of lessons, tailoring their talks to meet your needs.
If you want to learn more about Macmillan and our work in your local area, focus on charities in a class or assembly, or introduce the subject of cancer, inviting a Macmillan speaker to your school or group is a great way to kick-start your discussions. These talks will motivate pupils to support organisations like Macmillan, and understand more about how they can help people in their local area.
If you would like to be put in touch with your local Macmillan speaker to discuss your school’s needs and arrange a visit or join our group of schools and youth speakers, please contact us|.
For general information about cancer types, treatments, and living with cancer, see our cancer information| section.
To help you to teach about cancer, please also see our section with teaching resources|, and our information about how to request a Macmillan speaker| to visit your school.

I learned lots from the lady from Macmillan. It was good to learn about helping people with cancer. She was fun and I hope she comes back again. Primary school pupil
