Macmillan has produced two new resources to help people affected by cancer manage their finances.
Managing your debt: a self-help guide covers the basics of debt management and provides tools to help people deal with their debts.
A quick guide to benefits and financial help explains what financial benefits are available to people affected by cancer in a quick and easy-to-read format. You can also access our financial information online.
To order the booklets, or to talk to an experienced benefits adviser, please call 0808 808 00 00 or go to be.macmillan.org.uk .
Macmillan has also launched the Benefits Made Clear online guide. Tested and shaped by people affected by cancer, the online guide is easy to use, educates people about the benefits system and will help to prepare you before speaking to a benefits adviser.
