Employment support service

About us

This service is run by Maggie’s Manchester and is led by Stephen Wallwork.

Where we are

The service is based at Maggie's Manchester. The Christie, 15 Kinnard Road, M20 4QL.

What we do

Many people worry whether they can continue to work, how their employer will react, what rights they have and how they will pay the bills if they need time out of work.

Here at Maggie’s we work with The Christie to give you the help and support you need. Whether you are in an existing job, are looking for a new one or perhaps seeking a career change, we can offer expert advice, personal support and practical guidance tailored to your needs.

This independent service is completely free and available at your convenience, as soon as you feel ready. Whether before, during or after your treatment our dedicated advisor is here to help you with all things work related.

The patient journey

You don’t need to be referred. Please contact the service directly to arrange an appointment
