Macmillan @ Glasgow Libraries

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.

In libraries across the city, we offer a free and confidential drop-in service where anyone affected by cancer can get emotional, practical and financial support and reliable 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.

To find out more information on the support we provide and how to refer people into us contact us on 0141 287 2999 or
