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 we are now working in partnership with The Royal Oldham Hospital to open a second Centre based in Oldham. 

Maggie's and The Christie are working in partnership to create cancer support of the highest quality for people in the North West. The Centre opened in April 2016 to complement The Christie's excellent clinical care.

We are delighted to announce we will be building a new Centre in Oldham. The Centre is still in early planning stages and when open will significantly enhance the cancer support already offered across the region.
