Maggie’s Centres provide free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends. Prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas’ innovative design of interlocking rooms around a thriving internal garden creates a homely, calming place to visit.
Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends, following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks.
Built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, 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.
The first Maggie’s Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996 and since then Maggie’s has continued to grow, with 22 Centres at major NHS cancer hospitals in the UK and abroad. Maggie's also has an Online Centre.
Although there is no designated carpark for Maggie’s Centre, there is hospital car-parking available nearby. Parking is usually easier at weekends.
