Macmillan Cancer Information & Support Services

CultureNL and South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture are working with Macmillan Cancer Support to provide Macmillan Cancer Information & Support Services in your community.

If you’re affected by cancer you may want to know there’s someone you can turn to for help. Someone who can help find answers to your questions, whatever they may be.

Our Library Drop In Services

We are glad to offer our first two drop in services, now available at the following times and locations:

Bellshill Cultural Centre  – Tuesdays – 11am-1pm

Hamilton Town House – Wednesdays – 11am-1pm

More drop in services will become available as we further develop the programme.

If you want to find information, support and practical help or someone to talk to, come along to one of our Macmillan Information and Support Services. You can talk through issues and concerns with our staff and trained volunteers.

Our Library Information Points

If you’re affected by cancer you may want to know there’s somewhere you can go to find answers. Somewhere where someone can help you find answers to your questions, whatever they may be.
