At Macmillan, we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything, but we’re here to support  people living with cancer and their loved ones, from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. Whether it’s help with money worries and advice about work, or someone who’ll listen if they just want to talk, we’ll be there as a constant source of support.


Our work is only possible because of the amazing people that make up Macmillan. We are millions of supporters, professionals, volunteers and people affected by cancer. Together, we want to make sure that when someone is facing a difficult time they have the support they need to feel more like themselves.

Today around 2.5 million people are living with cancer in the UK. By 2030, this is projected to rise to 4 million.


We fund and support a range of health and social care professionals.
