What we do

No one should face cancer alone. So when you need someone to turn to, we’re here. Right from the moment you’re diagnosed, through your treatment and beyond, we’re a constant source of support, giving you the energy and inspiration to help you take back control of your life, and feel more like yourself again.

  • Our ambition

    Macmillan’s ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same.

  • How we work

    We’re here for you. Find out how we make sure we’re offering the best information, advice and resources for everyone.
