Information and support 

Our Information and Support team aim to help with every aspect of living with cancer. We have written information available to help with your understanding of cancer, its treatments and its effects. 

We also have a wealth of knowledge on local support services across the North West and can help to find the right support for you. 

If you have any questions about cancer or just need someone to talk to, please get in touch. We are here to help make your cancer journey as smooth as possible.

Welfare and benefits 

We have a dedicated team of welfare rights advisers who are able to help with any queries you may have about entitlements during cancer treatment. If you feel you need support in applying for benefits, call in or contact us to book an appointment. 

Our advisors are not always available on all three sites – booking an appointment will help us make sure we can be there for you and have the correct information to assist with your enquiry.
