Learning and development grants

We understand continuing professional development plays a vital part in maintaining the expertise and high standards of Macmillan professionals.

To support this development, Macmillan provides two grants for individual professionals and teams.

The new Learning and Development Grants Application System is a much simpler process and will enable you to manage all your grant applications in one place. Benefits include:

  • easy to apply for individual and group grants
  • view details of all your applications
  • easy to update your profile if your details change.

Find out more about individual and group grants on the Learning & Development Grants website.

My grant has been invaluable in so many ways professionally and personally – handling difficult situations, listening and interpreting views, showing leadership for consents from patients, researching protocols, interpreting data and other information from different sources, writing practice papers.

Support Grant

The Support Grant is a new flexible grant programme that is replacing the Macmillan Service Improvement Grant.

The Support Grant is available to Macmillan professionals or partner organisations, and is linked to quality improvement work supported by your Partnership Manager or Partnership Quality Lead.

The Support Grant must be of direct benefit to people living with cancer.

If you're interested in applying, please contact your Partnership Manager or Partnership Quality Lead to discuss the improvement work you have identified.

If you have any questions about the grant, or how to apply, please contact
