Benefits advice

If you or your family are living with cancer and struggling to cope with its financial impact, there is help available.

We know cancer can be expensive. Your income may go down and your spending may go up. You may have to pay for a special diet, childcare, higher heating costs, or travel to and from hospital.

You may also need help understanding the different grants and benefits that you may be entitled to.

We have a benefits advisor who can help.
