Talking to children about cancer
Support for Families
Maggie’s Cancer Support Specialists can help you talk to your children about cancer and what is happening; you can drop into the Centre to speak to them at any time. We also offer one-to-one and family support with a psychologist or Cancer Support Specialist.
Support for Children
In a number of our Centres we offer one-off Kids Days and Teen Days for children and young people who have a parent with cancer. These sessions provide a space in which young people can explore their concerns, meet others in the same situation and find out more about what is happening to their mum or dad.
If you would like support talking to your children about cancer please get in touch with your local Centre. You can find your nearest Maggie’s Centre using the search tool below.
Maggie’s CancerLinks is a site that helps people to navigate the maze of information available and find their way to quality information about cancer and the support before, during and after treatment.
You can also find information and support online. Our Online Centre offers the same supportive community and practical, emotional and social support as you’ll find in all our Centres.
