Cancer support offered by Glasgow libraries (Scotland)

Macmillan Cancer Support and Glasgow Life are collaborating in order to offer cancer support and information at libraries across the city. The new project, which is believed to be the first of its kind in the UK, wants to ensure that people with cancer are able to get support from their local community. A Macmillan Service Delivery Manager will lead a team of volunteers at 25 libraries around Glasgow. The project has already started, with centres available in Easterhouse, Springburn, Pollok, Dennistoun and the Mitchell Library. The remaining centres will launch in the next year and Cancer Support Scotland, who are also contributing to the project, will provide counsellors and complementary therapies
