When you volunteer for Macmillan, your generosity, energy and enthusiasm means people affected by cancer will get the support they need to take back control of their lives.
But we’re also here to help you too. That’s why on our online learning portal – LearnZone – you’ll find all sorts of free training to help you get the most from your volunteering.

‘Volunteering is more than what people think – there is a social side too. I’ve made friendships with my fellow volunteers, and we meet for lunch, for a chat and to give each other support’.
'The training is invaluable – you feel so capable afterwards and you receive ongoing support as a volunteer too,’ she says about LearnZone.
‘The support is the best quality you could ever have – Macmillan is very concerned about your wellbeing as a volunteer, and if you ever have any questions or problems, they’re always there to help in any way they can’.
