In this blog, Lucy (Content Performance Editor) outlines some of the ways that Macmillan can help you with the cost of living during your cancer treatment.
We understand that the cost of living increase has had a huge impact on people’s lives. With energy bills rising, you may be wondering what support we have to offer.
Financial support from Macmillan:
We also provide Macmillan Grants. These are one-off payments that help people on low incomes cope with the cost of living with cancer. Due to the cost of living increase, Macmillan have added 3.5 million pounds to the grants fund.
To find out more information on why the cost of living has increased, see our information page on cost of living.
We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone, but the added cost of having a cancer diagnosis may be making you feel more anxious.
