In libraries across the city, we offer a free and confidential drop-in service where anyone affected by cancer can get emotional support and high quality information in a relaxed environment.

Glasgow is the first place in the UK where everyone affected by cancer in the city has access to local, community based cancer information and support services, thanks to an innovative partnership between Macmillan Cancer Support and Glasgow Libraries.

Finding out that you or someone close to you has cancer can be a difficult and confusing time. That's why we're here to help support you, so you don't have to face it alone.

In libraries across the city, we offer a free and confidential drop-in service where anyone affected by cancer can get emotional support and high quality information in a relaxed environment.

We also run outreach - or pop up - sessions in the community. You'll find us everywhere from hospitals to health centres and community events. We'll have a private space and trained volunteers who are always ready to listen and offer support.

To find out more information on the support we provide and how to refer people into us contact us on 0141 287 2999 or macmillan@glasgowlife.org.uk
