Having cancer means you might be entitled to welfare benefits or other support to help with any extra costs – for example, if you have to give up work. 

We provide a comprehensive welfare benefits advice service to support all patients being treated by The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.

What we do 

We have a team of experienced Macmillan welfare benefits advisors covering our three main sites: Clatterbridge Cancer Centre – Aintree, Clatterbridge Cancer Centre – Liverpool and Clatterbridge Cancer Centre – Wirral. 

We can help you to understand any benefits that you may be entitled to claim including disability benefits, Blue Badges and grants.  

Our team

We are made up of a team of advisors who have been specialising in cancer-related welfare benefits for over 10 years. 

We understand that applying for benefits while you are having treatment can be a daunting process. We have a wealth of knowledge about supporting applications for benefits while having cancer treatment. 

Further information

Our service is based in the Cancer Information and Support  Centres on our three main sites. 

We try to provide support as quickly as possible but it might be best to phone in advance to check we are available if you need forms completing. 

Alternatively you can speak to the Cancer Information and Support Centre staff and they can help with any queries.
