Macmillan Outreach Volunteers

Sometimes people can be afraid to talk about cancer. After all, it can be a scary subject, but we're here to support people when they need it.

We're looking for people who can help us talk about cancer as part of an ongoing partnership between Macmillan Cancer Support and Manchester City Council. Working as a volunteer with the Macmillan Information and Support Service based in Manchester Libraries, you will help us to reach local communities. Macmillan's ambition is to reach everyone affected by cancer - you can help us to do this.

Your role will include raising awareness of Macmillan and the support service, sharing information about cancer signs and symptoms, as well as supporting events. Most of this activity happens during the day, between Monday and Friday, so you will need some availability during this time.

In return, we offer you the chance to develop your communication and presentation skills, gain volunteer experience, help to improve cancer awareness amongst local people and perhaps most importantly improve the lives of people affected by cancer.

You don't need to have personal experience of cancer or know lots about it; we will provide all the training you need.

If you'd like to find out more, talk to us. Call 0161 227 3727 to find out more or email

Applications will close when we have had enough interest, so contact us as soon as possible.
