Financial support after cancer diagnosis

What we do

Four out of five people living with cancer experience a financial impact and this can average £570 per month, according to research carried out by Macmillan Cancer Support.

This is why the charity works in partnership with the health board to provide information and support for those living with or beyond diagnosis, their families and carers.

Macmillan advisers offer a free and confidential service which includes assessing for possible benefit entitlement, assisting with claims, appealing benefit decisions and even helping with parking Blue Badge applications.
