About the organisation

Douglas Macmillan established the 'Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer' in 1911. Since then, through the funding of the first Macmillan nurse in 1975 and the launch of our integrated phone support service in 2009, we have been established as an expert in cancer care and support. As part of our strategy, we aim to be a strong voice for change that people will listen to. Our history and the expertise we have developed are powerful tools in driving our strategy because they establish our credibility. People and organisations want to work with us, because we are the first they think of when they think about Cancer. Everything we do is to help everyone living with cancer to live life as fully as they can. Our allied health professionals (AHPs), nurses, support specialists and services, work directly with people with cancer, their families and loved ones every day. We also aim to keep cancer at the top of the agenda by influencing others and heightening awareness of the issues involved. We raise money to make all our work possible.

Sandwell Family Life website relies on providers of local support and services to add information about their activities and keep this information up to date.
