About us

No one should face cancer alone and we are here at the Southport & Formby Cancer Information and Support Centre based at the Southport Macmillan Centre, to support anyone affected by cancer, in whatever way we can. We provide an information and support service for people affected by cancer, either themselves or as a family member/friend supporting someone with cancer.

We run drop-in sessions at our centre – 10am to 4.00pm Mondays to Fridays. No question is too big or too small, so come and join us for a cup of tea and a chat.

Alternatively, you can phone us on 01704 533024.

Having the right kind of information and support, at the right time, is essential. The Southport Macmillan Centre provides a free, confidential drop-in service for anyone affected by cancer. This includes people who:

• require information about cancer
• have a cancer diagnosis
• are living with the consequences of a cancer diagnosis
• are living with and beyond cancer
• are looking to reduce the risks of cancer
• are a carer, relative or friend of someone with cancer
• are health and social care professionals


How we can help

Staffed by Macmillan information and support staff, Social Prescribing Link Worker – Cancer Specialists (part of your GP Team) and trained volunteers, we are able to provide:
• literature and internet access on all aspects of living with cancer, including work and travel issues
• the opportunity to talk to someone in a friendly environment, and advice on how to access further emotional support eg counselling
• help with accessing financial advice including benefits and support applying for grants
• information about practical help that is available for example onward referrals to Occupational Therapy and Social Services.
• information on living well, physical activity, relaxation and healthy eating

Other Support

We also run a number of support groups at the Southport Macmillan Centre and locally e.g. a Walking Group, Singing Group and Craft Groups. There are also cancer specific support groups locally that we can signpost you to. We also deliver a course called the HOPE Course’ which is a course to support you after cancer treatment and help you feel more like yourself again.

We organise several ‘Health and Wellbeing Events’ each year, in partnership with Southport and Ormskirk Hospital Trust, and Southport and Formby CCG. You can find further information about these on the relevant pages on our website.
