Recruiting volunteers

We have recently developed our Volunteer toolkit – a distinct look and feel for volunteering to give us a clear and powerful identity.

We’ve also got our Volunteer messaging deck with some useful phrases for you to use in your volunteer communications. 

And why not check out Volunteer News, our quarterly newsletter stuffed full of our most recent volunteering stories?

Self help and support groups

Macmillan supports hundreds of independent cancer self-help and support groups and organisations across the UK. 
It's a place where people affected by cancer can spend time with others who share and understand their experience or who have dealt with it in the past. We have lots of posters and leaflets to help you promote your own groups locally.
