Macmillan Cancer Support in libraries

Cancer logo

The Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service helps people in Edinburgh who have been affected by cancer. Service points at Central Library, Craigmillar Library and Drumbrae Library Hub give access to Macmillan information materials and specialist books. Trained volunteers are on hand to offer a listening ear and help you find the information you need.


Volunteers give advice on how to access counselling and mindfulness services and other Macmillan funded support programmes.
