Benefits Advice

When you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, money worries should be the last thing on your mind. There is a local team of Macmillan experts who understand how tough it can be when you need to get a hold on the facts. They can help you make sense of your finances and guide you every step of the way.

The Macmillan Centre hosts the Hampshire Macmillan Citizens Advice Service on Mondays and Wednesdays. If you or your family have been affected by cancer, you can get free, confidential welfare benefits and money advice from a specialist Citizens Advice Bureau advisor.

What can we help with?
