​​​Find out about the Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service at your local library here.

Glasgow Libraries are working with Macmillan Cancer Support to provide Macmillan Cancer Information & Support Services in your community.​ If you're affected by cancer you may want to know there's someone you can turn to for help. Someone who can help find answers to your questions, whatever they may be. ​​

​Our partnership now operates in 33 libraries across the city, providing anyone affected by cancer with information, emotional support and access to other services including complementary therapies, counselling and benefits advice.​​​

We were absolutely delighted to come away from the Macmillan Professionals Awards with the Integration Excellence Award​ in 2017. On the night a short video was played of each of the nominees – hear from Alex who we have supported and watch the team in action! ​
​​​​We are currently recruiting for Macmillan Information & Support Volunteers. Find out more.​
