Macmillan welfare rights service for people affected by cancer

We work with Macmillan Cancer Support to provide a welfare rights service to assist people living with or affected by cancer.

This service includes:

  • ensuring income is maximised by checking entitlement to benefits and tax credits
  • assisting with benefit and grant application forms
  • resolving benefit disputes and assisting with any appeal work
  • providing debt advice
  • advising on entitlement to other support or services

If you are in contact with a Macmillan Nurse or other cancer specialist they can refer you direct to the service.
