“Walking through the door of a Maggie’s Centre will make a significant difference to how you live with cancer.
A Maggie’s Centre is for you if you have been recently diagnosed with cancer, have been living with cancer for years or have a friend or relative who has cancer.
Each Centre is situated beside an NHS Cancer Hospital and has been designed to be as un-institutional as possible, with light, space and warmth.
You don’t need to make a time or appointment to visit a Maggie’s Centre you can just walk through the door. There are no payments to be made and no forms to be filled in.
All our centres are run by professional, specialist staff. They are always at hand to talk to you or for you to talk to them. They can discuss any aspect of your cancer with you. You can tell them anything.
A Maggie’s Centre gives you choices. You can join a support group, take part in weekly sessions like relaxation and stress management or learn about nutrition and health. Or you can simply come in and sit at our kitchen table, have a cup of tea and a biscuit and start to breathe again.”
