Description

Maggie’s Centre Edinburgh is a place where anyone affected by cancer is welcome – from just being diagnosed or undergoing treatment, to post-treatment, recurrence, end of life or in bereavement. Maggie’s also warmly welcomes family and friends of the person with cancer.

A wide range of practical information and emotional support is offered at all Maggie’s Centres, including Maggie’s “Programme of Support” which is tailored to each person’s individual need. The professional experts who work at Maggie's will guide you through practical information and emotional support to help you to find the support you need, and your Programme of Support can range from advice on finances and nutrition, to stress management and relaxation, and much more. The Programme of Support is designed to help at any stage of cancer, and can be accessed at your local Maggie’s Centre, as and when you need it.

Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends.

Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need.

Our centres are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; places where qualified experts provide emotional support; places to meet other people; places where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea.

Drop into Maggie’s for practical, emotional and social support from our professional staff at any time from 9:00am - 5:00pm, Monday to Friday (with some evening and weekend groups and courses).
