Practical Support

Local cancer agencies and charitable organisations are invaluable sources of information and provide practical support to help you, your carer or family deal with the issues you might have to face and any questions you have.

This could be anything from advice on financial issues, benefits and additional support you may be eligible for including home adaptations, transport issues and nursing provision.

They can also advise you on the wide range of programmes and groups which you can access and put you in touch with a network of professionals. They will also work with you to identify and find solutions for practical matters such as childcare and pet care when you are in hospital or recovering from treatment.
