Maggie’s Newcastle, a dedicated cancer support charity, was chosen as Charity of the Year for 2021/2022.
Located in the grounds of the Freeman Hospital, Maggie’s Newcastle offers free practical, emotional, and social support to people affected by any form of cancer, as well as their families and friends. The aim of Maggie’s is to empower people to live with, through, and beyond cancer by bringing together professional help and communities of support.
Built in 2013, the Newcastle centre is designed to be a warm and welcoming space with qualified experts on hand to offer free support and guidance for people across the North East and Cumbria. The team consists of NHS-trained Cancer Support Specialists with expert knowledge about cancer and treatment, as well as psychologists and a benefits advisor for those who need help accessing financial support.
Maggie’s Newcastle, one of 24 Maggie’s cancer support centres across the UK, relies on voluntary donations to continue offering its unique, high quality programme of support.
