What we can offer

Our media team is able to offer an expert voice from our range of professional staff, director of programmes or CEO on a range of cancer-related issues including:

Emotional and psychological support – counselling, bereavement, caring for someone with cancer

Benefits advice – entitlement, other forms of financial and practical help

Relaxation and stress management – tai chi, yoga, art, creative writing, visualisation

Practical advice – managing hair loss, nutrition advice, beauty advice

We are able, normally at short notice, to provide case studies for most aspects of our programme of support who can be filmed in visually stunning environments across the country. We can also offer the Centres to be filmed in as a background for appropriate press stories.

About Maggie’s

  • Maggie’s offers free practical, emotional and social support to people living with cancer and their family and friends. Built in the grounds of specialist NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are warm and welcoming places, with qualified professionals on hand to offer a programme of support that has been shown to improve physical and emotional wellbeing.
  • Great architecture is vital to the care Maggie’s offers; and to achieve that Maggie’s works with great architects like the late Zaha Hadid, Richard Rogers and Norman Foster, whose expertise and experience deliver the calm, uplifting environments that are so important to the people who visit and work in the Centres.
  • The first Maggie’s Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996. There are now 19 Centres across the UK, online and abroad, with more planned for the future.
  • Maggie’s Online Centre extends Maggie’s support to reach people wherever they are in the world and whenever they need it at www.maggiescentres.org/onlinecentre
  • Maggie’s relies on voluntary donations to support and grow its network of Centres and to develop its unique, high quality programme of support. The charity’s aim is to make the biggest difference possible to people living with cancer and their family and friends.
  • 2017 marks Maggie’s 21st anniversary. 
  • Maggie's president is HRH The Duchess of Cornwall.
