MacMillan Cancer Support work with the Oncology Department at Treliske to support Cornwall.
These are small, mostly one-off payments to help people with costs caused by or related to their cancer.
Everyone’s practical needs are different, so grants are available for a variety of things. Whether you need extra clothing, help paying heating bills or even a relaxing break, you may be entitled to a Macmillan Grant.
How much you receive will vary depending on your circumstances and needs, but the average grant is around £400. A grant from Macmillan would not normally affect the benefits you’re entitled to. It’s an extra help, not a replacement for other forms of support.
You can apply for a Macmillan Grant if you have cancer, or are still seriously affected by your illness or treatment, and both of the following apply:
*Please note that Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment and Attendance Allowance don’t count as net income in our calculations.
While these are the general criteria, we do take individual circumstances into account, so please contact us.
We aim to make our application process as simple and quick as possible.
Any personal or medical information included in your application will be treated confidentially.
Every week, more than 600 people receive a grant from Macmillan. If you have any questions about Macmillan Grants or if you’re having problems getting someone to fill in an application form with you, please contact us on 0808 808 00 00
