Information and support centres

*Due to Covid-19 please phone or email us to check our opening times and availability before visiting our Centre.* Our team is here to offer free and confidential support, advice and information to you, your family and carers, now and in the future. We offer time to meet with you and talk together, helping you to plan and live well. Whatever your problem we will go the extra mile to support you living with and beyond cancer. We offer emotional support, cancer information materials, access to benefits advice, Holistic Needs Assessments & signposting to our own and local support groups. We provide the Coventry University/Macmillan ‘HOPE Course' (Help Overcoming Problems Effectively) three times per year, to help people manage the day to day impact cancer has on their lives and rediscover their strengths after treatment ends. We provide Health & Wellbeing Events twice a year, to support people living with and beyond cancer to support self-management through the many services available locally. We work closely with our 'Move More' physiotherapy team who undertake an assessment and provide a personalised activity plan and access to supervised activity in the community or hospital gym. We also work closely with local therapists including Boots to offer pamper sessions. Our monthly Support Group Meetings are the 1st Monday of the month, Carers Café Support group meeting 1st Tuesday of the month both at the Skelmersdale Macmillan Centre.
