Your impact

Thanks to supporters like you, Macmillan can be there to help more and more people living with cancer. It’s thanks to your generosity that we’re able to offer more of the financial, emotional and physical support people need to take back control of their lives.

£29 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for an hour, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.

£500 could pay for a Macmillan professional to attend an advanced course in pain and symptom control. This would help the professional provide better advice to people with cancer on how to control their symptoms and deal with the pain caused by treatment.

£2,485 could pay for a Macmillan social care worker or family support worker for a month. They work with community and social services agencies to help people manage the social and practical problems of living with cancer.

£4,579 could help run a small Macmillan information and support centre for a month. This would mean more people affected by cancer would have someone to answer their questions and talk to about their concerns.

£6,158  could pay to run the welfare rights element of our phone service for a day. In this time, they could, on average, deal with 174 individual cases and help secure £243,928 in unclaimed benefits.

£10,000 could support a multi-disciplinary community of professionals, bringing them together to share expertise and work on joint projects for a year.
