Who we are

We are millions of supporters, professionals, volunteers and campaigners. Together we make sure you’re treated like a person – not just a patient – and have the support you need to live life as fully as you can.

  • Our people

    Meet the people who make Macmillan. From the supporters who give their time, to the professionals there for people affected by cancer and their families.

  • Our history

    Since Douglas Macmillan used his £10 inheritance to found the Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer over a hundred years ago, there’ve been a lot of changes.

  • Our leadership team

    Get to know the boss Lynda Thomas and her leadership team. They all come from different backgrounds but the thing they have in common is a passion for the work we do.

  • Our trustees

    Our Board of Trustees is here to set and review our direction and make sure we’re delivering our objectives. They offer advice and guidance to help Macmillan support as many people as possible.

Macmillan Cancer Support is registered as a charity with the Charity Commission (registered charity number 261017) and as a company limited by guarantee with the Registrar of Companies (registered company number 2400969).

We are governed by our Articles of Association [PDF]
