Cancer Information and Support Services

Macmillan CISS

If you're affected by cancer and you're looking for someone to turn to, you may want to know that there are trained people ready to listen to you in your local area.

Our library drop in services are open on a weekly basis to help by signposting or referring you to a specialist service, or by simply offering a listening ear and a cuppa!


Our Library Drop In Services

We are delighted to offer our weekly drop in service, now available at the following times and location:

  • Barrhead Foundry - Every Monday & Wednesday from 10.30am - 12.30pm
  • Clarkston Library - Every Friday from 10.30am - 2.30pm*
  • *Temporarily moving to Giffnock Library from March 27 due to closure of Clarkston Library.

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

Our Library Information Points

If you are looking for some quick information or literature relating to cancer, the Macmillan information points can help you find information you need, as well as signposting you to the nearest Macmillan drop in session.

Macmillan East Ren information points are currently being developed and will be available at the following locations:

  • Mearns Library
  • Giffnock Library
  • Neilston Library
  • Thornliebank Library
