Maggie's Centre

Maggie's centres are a network of drop-in centres across the United Kingdom which aim to help anyone with cancer and their family and friends.

They complement the excellent medical care provided by the NHS by offering a caring and uplifting environment that can deliver support, information and practical advice. Each Maggie’s centre is designed by leading architects. This is because we know that great design and architecture can help the people who come to us for support feel better – and help us to give the best possible cancer support. The Maggie’s in St Barts is no exception, having been designed by Steven Holl.

Here Jamie Minns, the Centre Fundraising Organiser, and the interior design of the building is shown to express the importance of physical surroundings to a person’s wellbeing.
