Charity grants

There are charities and organisations that offer financial support to people with cancer and their families. The amount of support they can offer varies. Some charities can help with day to day expenses, and others may make a contribution towards particular costs.

Some charities ask for a nurse, doctor or social worker to refer you. This simplifies the application process for the charity so they can arrange your support as quickly as possible.

It's always worth contacting a charity directly if you're not sure whether you qualify for a grant because every case is different.
