It is with great sadness that we confirm the immediate closure of Cancer Support Scotland.

Throughout 2024 the trustees, management team and staff have worked tirelessly to find a way forward that would allow the charity to continue to deliver its support to people affected by cancer, but this has not been possible.

The need for wellbeing support for those affected by cancer has continued to grow – but sadly a combination of rising costs, challenging operating conditions and a reduction in fundraising income over the last few years left the trustees with no other choice but to close the charity.

For over 40 years Cancer Support Scotland offered mental health and wellbeing support to people affected by cancer. In that time the charity has made a positive impact on many thousands of lives.  Even in the most challenging of times, our services have continued and thanks to the incredible generosity of our supporters Cancer Support Scotland was able to deliver services up until the day of closure.

Many thanks to all of the staff and volunteers, past and present, who have given their time and effort to improving the lives of people with cancer.

Looking after our Service Users

We have been able to speak to a range of other charities, and our service users are being signposted to those that offer support and services.

If you are affected by cancer, and need to speak to somebody we suggest calling the Macmillan Cancer Support line on 0808 808 0000.

Cessation of Fundraising

We can no longer accept donations, and we ask that our wonderful supporters continue to support other cancer charities.

Liquidators and Affected Parties

Cancer Support Scotland is currently liaising with insolvency practitioners ahead of the formal appointment of liquidators in the near future. Once appointed, the liquidators will be in touch with affected parties.

Please note that as of today we are unable to respond to emails, calls or letters.
