The difference your money can make

It costs £590,000 a year to keep a Maggie's Centre open. Your money will help our growing number of Centres around the UK continue to provide emotional, practical and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends.

Today there are two million people living with or after cancer in the UK, and this figure is steadily rising with over 300,000 new diagnoses each year. These people can face tough questions, exhausting treatment and difficult emotions that can range from anxiety to loneliness and isolation. These challenges affect not only those with cancer, but their family and friends too.

Maggie's Centres provide practical, emotional and social support to complement the excellent medical treatment that the NHS provides. They are a warm and welcoming refuge from the stress of the hospital; visitors can talk to the professional experts on hand about information and advice, or they can sit in conversation with other people who understand what they're going through, or they can simple find a quiet space to reflect.
