Welfare benefits and money advice The diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer can bring sudden and unexpected changes to your financial situation. You may find that you are unable to continue with your job and that your income is suddenly reduced. This can be a major difficulty to have to cope with when you have been diagnosed with or are being treated for breast cancer. Our Macmillan welfare benefits and money advisor can help you find the best way to deal with your financial difficulties at this time. You can get relevant and up-to-date advice and information on any financial difficulty that you may be facing. Our advisor is based at Breast Cancer Haven, Wessex where we provide both booked appointments and drop-in sessions. In addition to this, we can also give advice over the telephone wherever you are and this help is available for people affected by any type of cancer. Appointment Information You can request an appointment at any time. If you are unable to attend in person a telephone appointment can be arranged instead. If your money related question is brief we recommend you book on one of our weekly drop in sessions. However, if you need help or guidance to fill in benefit claims, grant application forms or similar then you may need to book a two hour appointment. For any other enquiries a one hour appointment should be enough. If you are unsure what type of appointment you need please speak to a member of our front desk team who can advise you. You may need to bring details of personal income and expenditure. If you are unsure speak to a member of our team who can advise you. Please call us on 0300 012 0112 to speak to someone.
