Macclesfield Cancer Help Centre
About Us

The following pages show you the range of group Therapeutic Events that have been organised over a number of years.

The aim has always been to encourage the benefits of seeking support and to 'sign-post' how this can be achieved. Speakers at these events are generally experts in their own field.

We publish a regular monthly Newsletter to our clients detailing forthcoming events.

If you would like to know more about these events please contact the Centre on: 07981 899526 or e-mail:

The ‘Poster’ buttons give you the opportunity to see more detail about these events.

Shown below are the regular monthly ‘Therapeutic Events’ which have changing themes.

A complete calendar for the year can be found here:


    • Carers Support
    • Caring for someone who is ill can be difficult at times and carers can occasionally feel inadequate for the task.
    • Sharing information and experience can often prove really valuable, so do not hesitate to come to the Centre where we hope that we can give you the opportunity to meet people in a similar situation in order to provide friendship and support for each other.
    • The Centre staff will be on hand to provide a ‘cuppa’ and any other support that may be needed.
    • Pilates
    • To help develop those 'Core Muscles'
    • Each week is taken as a new event so you can join at any time.
    • Weekly between 2:45pm to 3:45pm
