Social Work & Benefits Advice

We recognise that when facing a life limiting illness there are many other fears that might be more overwhelming.  Our Social Workers and Benefits Advisors can help with some of these such as housing and financial worries

We know that as well as effecting your health, a life threatening illness can have an impact financially, socially and emotionally. Our Social Workers and Welfare Rights Advisors are experienced in supporting patients and carers with a range of financial, social and emotional issues.
