Macmillan Funded Courses

In addition to the resources available online, our geographical L&D teams also provide free face to face courses and events for both Macmillan and non Macmillan Health and Social Care professionals who care for people affected by cancer on a more local level. Please find links below to the regional prospectuses which you can download as a PDF file or just browse online.

To enquire about course places, email your local L&D team who will be happy to answer any questions about the events.

Whilst we are more than happy for you to attend courses that are outside your geographical area, as a charity, we wouldn't be able to contribute towards any travel or expenses associated with attending our free courses.
