Centre Volunteers

  • VO94948


Our centres rely on the support of volunteers, so that our Cancer Support Specialists can concentrate on providing our visitors with the support they need.

Administration, greeting visitors, maintaining the library area, filling the dishwasher, making cups of tea… there are so many different ways for our volunteers to keep our centres running smoothly.

All help makes a real difference and is greatly appreciated. To volunteer with us/for more details please contact Kevin Mathieson, Centre Head Aberdeen at email: kevin.mathieson@maggiescentres.org or telephone: 01224 645928.

Organisation aims and objectives

Maggie’s are a network of cancer caring centres that provide support that empowers people to live with, through and beyond cancer. We provide this support for anyone affected by cancer including family, friends and carers. We want everyone to have access to high quality, community based cancer support.


Experience required: Friendly, welcoming, calm and organised. There will be times when visitors will be emotional and distressed, volunteers would not be asked to deal with this directly but will see this.
