Peter McLaughlin and Sarah Presto, Macmillan Welfare Rights Advisers 

Come and chat live to our friendly Welfare Rights Advisers Sarah Presto and Peter McLoughlin next Thursday lunchtime. They’ll be answering your questions about benefits for people living with cancer.

Money worries are the last thing you need when you’re facing the toughest fight of your life. However, many people who are diagnosed with cancer see an impact on their finances, either through a drop in income, increased costs, or both. 

There are a range of different benefits available to people living with cancer, but it can be a minefield trying to work out what you are eligible for and how to apply. That’s why our Welfare Rights Team are here to help.

To ask your questions to Sarah and Peter, join us in the chatroom from 12-1pm on Thursday 13 December. Or, if you can’t make the chat, post your question below, and I’ll ask it for you. All the questions and answers will be published here on the Community News Blog after the chat.

To speak to a Welfare Rights Adviser like Sarah or Peter one-to-one, you can also call freephone 0808 808 0000 (Mon-Fri, 9am-8pm).
