The Macmillan CAB Welfare Benefits Service provides information, advice and advocacy to people affected by cancer living in Leicester, Leicestershire, Rutland or receiving treatment within the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust (UHL). We provide a free and confidential service to cancer patients, their families, and carers. Our advice is focused on identifying benefit entitlement and assisting service users through the claiming process to achieve income maximisation. We can also help with challenging decisions and representing at tribunals. Additionally we help with Blue badge applications, accessing charitable grants, and signposting to partner organisations for issues such as debt, employment and housing.
Residents of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We also see client’s from other areas if they are having treatment at any of the Leicester hospitals.
