Volunteering as a Macmillan Buddy

Our Macmillan Buddy service provides a lifeline for people with cancer, offering them weekly support from someone who understands what they’re going through. The service is delivered by volunteers, who undergo comprehensive training and are fully supported by our staff and lead volunteers.

There’s more information and a link to current opportunities below. Or you might wish to join one of our monthly online information sessions. They’re a monthly video call where you can:

hear from people living with cancer about the powerful impact their volunteer buddies had on their situation

• meet some of our current volunteers

• ask us any questions you might have about the role

One service, multiple forms of support
