• The FORCE Cancer Support and Information Centre is OPEN, 9:30am to 4:30pm weekdays, no appointment needed.

Benefits advice

Living with cancer can have a significant impact on your finances so FORCE and our partners at Citizens Advice offer free guidance on claiming benefits.

You need an appointment to speak to our Benefits Advisor Mike Watson. Call us on 01392 406151 to book a session.

Advice is available to patients and carers.

If you’re earning less because your work pattern is affected, face increased costs from being at home more or extra outlay from the need to access treatment, get in touch.

There is financial support available from Government and charitable sources. We can help you claim any benefits you may be entitled to and assist with completing forms and accessing additional support.
