Thank you for your support, it really does make a difference.
Maggie’s offers free emotional, practical and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends.
Located in the grounds of specialist cancer hospitals, Maggie’s provides a respected and evidence-based programme of support, tailored to the individual, by a team of experts.
Each Centre is uniquely designed to create a space that is uplifting and comforting, where people can draw strength, share their experiences and feel supported. Architects who have designed Maggie’s Centres include Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid and Richard Rogers
The first Maggie’s Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996. There are now 18 Centres with more planned for the future.
Each year in Scotland over 30,100 people are diagnosed with cancer and this figure is rising annually. The good news is that people are living for longer with cancer and Maggie’s is here to support people with cancer, as well as their friends and families, to live as well as possible.
Maggie’s welcomes those at all points of their cancer journey: from diagnosis, to treatment, post-treatment, at stages of recurrence, end of life or in bereavement.
