Macmillan support and information services

We want to keep everyone safe from the coronavirus (covid-19) therefore we have made the decision to close our Macmillan support and information services in libraries from Tuesday 17 March.

For information, support, or just someone to talk to you can call us on 01389 608049 or email

The Macmillan Support Line can also help with clinical, practical and financial information on 0808 808 00 00 (7 days a week, 8am-8pm)

If you're affected by cancer you may want to know there's someone you can turn to for help.
