Family support at Maggie's

We support families in so many ways.

We can help you find ways to have difficult conversations, support you as you come to terms with changes in your life or help you to adapt to your new role as a carer.

You can also join our Friends and Family course, which covers practical things like how to take care of yourself and the person you're caring for.

Get in touch with your nearest centre to find out how we can support you.

Cancer can change the lives of the whole family. Children, especially, can find it very difficult to cope if they, a parent or a sibling is diagnosed with cancer, while parents going through treatment can struggle to keep family life on track.
