The Macmillan Money Matters service is a joint initiative between Macmillan Cancer Support, NHS Forth Valley, Stirling Council, Falkirk Council and the Department for Work and Pensions.
Living with cancer can be a daily challenge and may cause financial difficulties. Diagnosis can have a huge impact on your life, and money worries can be a major cause of stress.
The benefits system can seem complicated and finding your way through it can be difficult. Dealing with Government agencies and filling in forms may feel like too much to cope with right now. But you don’t have to do it alone – we can help.
Our advisers can:
• Provide a financial wellbeing check;
• Help you to complete benefit claim forms and appeal against benefit decisions;
• Assist you in applying for grants and transport concessions such as the Blue Badge;
• Help you with costs such as travel to hospital.
We can arrange to visit you at home, hospital, a local council office or anywhere else that is convenient for you.
