Geographical remit: 


One in three of us will get cancer. The Macmillan team is there for people affected by cancer every step of the way. We help improve the lives of both those living with cancer and also their families and carers. Our ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer, and inspire millions of others to do the same.


We provide medical support by funding nurses and other specialist health care professionals, and building cancer care centres.

We provide emotional and practical support and information through our cancer support specialists, website and trained professionals.

We give financial support to cope with the extra costs cancer can bring, giving benefits advice, and grants for anything from heating bills to travel costs.

We also work with people affected by cancer to improve cancer care, using our combined knowledge to make a positive difference. This could be anything from getting a coffee machine installed in a waiting room, to bringing about changes in the law.

And we fight discrimination, from challenging unfair travel costs and insurance policies to improving the national benefits system.
