Mobile Information and support service

The Mobile Information and Support Service (MISS) tours the UK throughout the year, offering free, confidential information and support.

Anyone is welcome, whether they have a cancer diagnosis, are visiting on behalf of a friend or relative, or are worried about cancer in any way at all. We have a team of highly skilled Information Specialists who can help with a wide range of clinical, financial, emotional and practical aspects of living with and beyond cancer. This includes:

 
  • Screening and what to look out for, for example signs and symptoms 
  • Different cancers, their treatments and side effects 
  • How cancer affects your life, for example finances or employment 
  • Talking about your cancer or talking to someone with cancer 
  • Being there for someone with cancer, or support available locally
  • Survivorship and recurrence

In order to reach as many communities as possible we offer a variety of information and support delivery methods. This includes four information units and two indoor information pods. These can be set up in a variety of locations:

 
  • shopping centres
  • hospitals
  • libraries 
  • exhibitions.

Our team of Information Specialists also visit workplaces, markets, festivals and community groups offering information and support and raise awareness of the ways Macmillan can support people affected by cancer.

Please take a look at our tour dates to see when a mobile centre will be near you. If you have an enquiry about our upcoming visits please get in touch by emailing the team on mobileinfounit@macmillan.org.uk.

    Information and support centres

    Our local centres offer free, confidential information and support. If you or a loved one has questions about cancer, we’re here.

    Health and wellbeing clinics

    The impact of cancer doesn’t stop when treatment ends. With more people than ever surviving after a diagnosis, getting support after treatment is vital.

    Cancer environments

    Macmillan has been creating healing cancer environments with the NHS and other partners since 1976, and we’re experts at what we do.
