Where your fundraising goes
Macmillan nurses do so much for people with cancer, from helping to ease the symptoms to providing emotional and practical support for the family.
Cancer information and support
From our free support line to information booklets to the Online Community, we answer questions, provide information and listen when people need to talk.
Help with money worries
Cancer can be tough on your finances. We help with things like benefits, grants for hospital travel and managing bills, so people can concentrate on getting through treatment.
Your fundraising can make a huge difference

£350 A Macmillan Grant is a one-off payment of £350 to help with the extra costs that living with cancer can bring. It can be used to help ease some of the additional financial pressures caused by a cancer diagnosis, such as increased energy and water bills, cost of travel to and from hospital and making home adaptations.
