Mobile Information and support service

Information and advice about life with or beyond cancer, brought to you in your local community – in England, Wales and Scotland.

Everyone is welcome to use the service. Whether you have a cancer diagnosis, have a friend or relative affected by cancer, or are worried about cancer in any way at all, there are lots of ways that Macmillan can support you - medically, financially, emotionally and practically.

A dedicated mobile team of highly-qualified Macmillan professionals travel across the UK on a fleet of six big green Macmillan buses: Basil, Bertie, Beryl, Betty, Bronwen and Dougie.

The buses park up at lots of public places, from markets to outside shopping centres and libraries.

The team also man Macmillan information stands indoors in public places like shopping centres, hospitals, libraries and exhibitions, and visit places of worship, community groups and workplaces, even shows and festivals.

    Back to Local information and support services

    Information and support centres

    Our local centres offer free, confidential information and support. If you or a loved one has questions about cancer, we’re here.

    Health and wellbeing clinics

    The impact of cancer doesn’t stop when treatment ends. With more people than ever surviving after a diagnosis, getting support after treatment is vital.

    Cancer environments

    Macmillan has been creating healing cancer environments with the NHS and other partners since 1976, and we’re experts at what we do.
