Maggies Manchester

If you or someone you care about has been diagnosed with cancer, Maggie's can help. Maggies understand that when you're diagnosed with cancer you need much more than medical support.

You might need information about how treatment will affect you; emotional support and practical advice; a place to go where you can talk to people going through the same things or simply for a quiet escape from a clinical environment.

They offer one-to-one sessions, workshops or support groups  as well as help with money worries and benefits. They also work with experts who provide exercise groups, yoga, nutrition advice and more.

Maggie’s is an independent charity – but their centres are beside major cancer hospitals across the UK and they have excellent relationships with our partner hospitals. You can drop into Maggies for practical, emotional and social support from their professional staff at any time from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
