The Kitchen Table - a place to talk openly about cancer

The Kitchen Table

At the heart of every Maggie’s Centre is a kitchen table:

It’s a place to sit and read; a place or talk to other people; a place to find support from professional experts.

You can walk into Maggie’s at any time, make yourself a cup of tea and sit down at the kitchen table to think, talk, laugh, cry or simply take a quiet moment.

You’re always welcome at our kitchen table; it’s a place for everyone.

"For me Maggie’s represented a community, a place which was extraordinarily welcoming and where I could just crash out. You didn’t have to put on a front, but could just be. I still call by to catch up with friends I made there, which says it all."
