Our Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall control and strategic direction of Macmillan. They meet regularly to discuss, decide and review our strategies and policies and receive reports and updates from senior managers. Our trustees work for Macmillan voluntarily to make sure we’re doing all we can to reach and improve the lives of people affected by cancer.
In 2016 we supported hundreds of thousands of people with cancer. Our annual report and accounts explain more about how we did this.
We talked to lots of people living with and affected by cancer and a common thread came out: that whilst cancer is life-changing, it isn’t always life-defining.
We want to make sure we're there when you're diagnosed, through treatment, and beyond. Because life with cancer is still life, and we'll help you live it.

If you've just joined up and aren't sure where to start, this is the group for you. Tell us a bit about what brings you here, and don't be afraid to ask questions. Someone will be on hand to welcome you and point you in the right direction
