Find support from others near you
Being told you have cancer, or that your cancer has returned, can leave you feeling shocked, upset and very isolated. There are so many questions to be answered and so many feelings to deal with.
Macmillan supports more than 900 independent cancer support groups and organisations across the UK, giving you an opportunity to talk to people who understand what you're going through.
By joining a cancer support group you can spend time with people who share or understand your experience. It’s an opportunity for you to talk about your deepest concerns, and know they will be met with acceptance and understanding. This simple act of sharing can make an enormous difference to the way you feel.

The information in this online directory is provided by the groups and organisations themselves. They are all independent of Macmillan so we are unable to guarantee the level of support they offer or take responsibility for the information they provide.
