Maggie's

Maggie’s is a charity offering free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their family and friends through support Centres built in the grounds of NHS hospitals.

Maggie’s was founded in 1995 by Maggie Keswick Jencks and her husband Charles Jencks. Maggie lived with advanced cancer for two years and during that time she used her knowledge and experience to develop a new type of cancer care. Maggie was determined that people should not “lose the joy of living in the fear of dying”.

Our aim is to make the biggest difference we can for people living with cancer and their family and friends.

Today, there are two million people living with or after cancer in the UK and this figure is steadily rising, with more than 300,000 new diagnoses each year.

To meet this growing need we plan to open more Centres and support more people through the Centres we already have; our ambition for the future is to have a Maggie’s Centre at every specialist NHS cancer hospital across the UK.
