Maggie's Centres are for anybody who has, or who has had cancer. They are also for their families, their friends and their carers.

The aim of Maggie's Centres is to help people with cancer to be as healthy in mind and body as possible and enable them to make their own contribution to their medical treatment and recovery.

They allow people to address all aspects of living with cancer. They can share their experiences with others in similar situations and, with professional help, inform themselves about the medical realities of their disease.

The friendly environment of the centres, close in each case to a major cancer hospital treatment centre, invites people to take time out and gives them a non-institutional place they can call their own.

They now have centres in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Inverness, Fife, Lanarkshire, Cheltenham, Oxford, London and Hong Kong. Please contact the above for further information.
