Advice about benefits

Benefits Advice

At Maggie’s you can speak to a specialist Benefits Advisor to get advice on receiving all the benefits you are entitled to.

If you, or someone you care for, is living with cancer, our Benefits Advisors can help you complete forms and also access any additional support that you might be eligible for, such as parking permits.

We know that living with cancer can have a real impact on your finances, through lost income and increased costs such as heating and travel. Our Benefits Advisors are here to help you understand which benefits are available to you and to help with the application process.

If you’d like to speak to an expert about your benefits you can visit your local Centre, which offers drop-in and booked appointments. You can find your nearest Maggie’s Centre using the search tool below.

You can also find support with benefits and other financial issues by visiting our Online Centre. Our online Benefits Advisor offers one-to-one support and our Benefits blog covers many of the important issues about finances and living with cancer.

"It provided people to talk to about how I was feeling and also practical support to help with the financial issues from not being able to work. You are really not equipped to deal with when you are going through the overall upheaval and treatment."
