Resources for Macmillan Alumni

Information for previous Macmillan professionals and members of the Macmillan Alumni

We often hear that you're proud of your work with Macmillan and would like to stay involved after your role ends. Now there's an easy way to do just that: our new Macmillan Alumni programme exclusively for previous Macmillan professionals.

What is Macmillan Alumni?

Whether you've moved on to a different role or retired, Macmillan Alumni is a great opportunity to network with other cancer and palliative care professionals from across the UK and to share your knowledge and experience.

At the same time, it allows you to stay in touch and maintain your relationship with Macmillan. By spreading our messages and providing us with valuable insights, you can continue to have a huge impact on our work for people affected by cancer.

How does it work?

The Macmillan Alumni programme is open to anyone who's leaving a Macmillan post or who has previously held one.

Simply pass on your details, including your e-mail address, to your local Macmillan Development Manager. Or e-mail the Macmillan Alumni team at
