A cancer diagnosis for you or someone you love can lead to unexpected costs. If you’re unable to work or have to make changes to your lifestyle, it can be expensive. And if you’re unable to work, bills can quickly mount up. There are often benefits and grants that you might be entitled to which can help with some of the financial pressure of cancer.  

Our team of expert Benefits Advisors can talk to you about what financial support is available and guide you through the complex benefits system. We can look at your circumstances like your financial situation, who you live with and what health needs you have, and advise you in detail about any welfare benefits, grants, or practical help that you should perhaps be getting.  

They can also help with applications and advise on challenging benefits decisions or help with progressing claims where necessary. Please click here to find out how to chat with a Benefits Advisor.
