The need for Maggie's in Greater Manchester

Every year, 50,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in the North West, facing 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.

Built in the grounds of specialist NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need. They are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; places where qualified experts provide emotional support; friendly places to meet other people; calming spaces simply to sit quietly with a cup of tea.
Our aim is to be there for anyone and everyone with cancer across Greater Manchester, offering a programme of support based on evidence proven to strengthen physical and emotional wellbeing.

Maggie’s Manchester opened in the grounds of The Christie in April 2016, and a second Centre, based at The Royal Oldham Hospital, opened in June 2017

Maggie’s and The Christie worked in partnership to create a Centre to provide cancer support of the highest quality for people in the North West. The Centre opened in 2016.

The Maggie’s Centre in the grounds of the Royal Oldham Hospital opened in June 2017, significantly enhancing the cancer support already offered across the region.

Everything we do at Maggie's relies on the generosity of our supporters. In order that we can continue to provide cancer support for those that need it in the North West, consider fundraising for our Centres there.
