Financial help

A diagnosis of cancer causes worry and stress in many different ways. One of the main worries is money.

Unfortunately, we don't have the resources to provide assistance directly but you can get advice from other organisations, a couple of which we list below which you may find useful:

Cancer Research UK

Advice on Government benefits and charity grants


Macmillan Cancer Support

Maggie's Centres

Practical advice on the help available for the extra costs of living with cancer


NHS Choices
