Resources, information and support to help health and social care professionals in their role.

Macmillan Funded Courses

In addition to the online resources, Macmillan's geographical L&D teams also provide free face-to-face courses and events for both Macmillan and non Macmillan Health and Social Care professionals locally.

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

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