When you or a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal illness, there’s so much to think about. Being terminally ill can be expensive and that’s why putting your life and money matters in order is really important. So many people are missing out on financial help because they didn’t know they were entitled to it. It’s estimated that £13bn in benefits go unclaimed by those who didn’t know they were eligible. That’s why our Welfare Benefits Advisor, Katie, is here to help.

Katie works hard to help people with life limiting conditions and their families to get the support they need. She can help patients with applying for financial support, including:

  • Disability Allowance (Including Attendance Cover (Over 65s) and Personal Independence Payments (Under 65))
  • Carers’ Allowance
  • MacMillan Grants (for cancer patients)
  • Means tested benefits

She can also help with:

  • Blue Badges
  • Information about community alarms
  • Free Wills Service
  • Guardianship
  • Meals on Wheels

We know that form-filling can be really frustrating and time consuming which is why we can help you with this as well as speaking to different agencies (local council, housing support, NHS etc) on your behalf.
