Macmillan Information Centre

We offer support and information to anyone who has concerns about cancer, their relatives, friends and carers. We can help you with the practical and emotional aspects of living with cancer, from finance and benefits support to travel insurance. We can also help you with information on health promotion, prevention and detection of cancer. Our information is available in different languages on request and is suitable for people with learning difficulties. We also offer guided access to the internet. We can put you in touch with other groups and organisations that we think will be able to help you, including the Macmillan benefits advice service, the Macmillan cancer rehabilitation team, and local support groups.

The Centre staff are there to offer friendly advice and support in quiet and comfortable surroundings. You don’t need a referral from a doctor or nurse and you can drop in without an appointment. All discussions are in complete confidence and we welcome anyone who needs our help. We also run an outreach service at the West Berkshire Community Hospital and Bracknell Healthspace.
