About our service

The team

Those affected by cancer are often entitled to a range of benefits. The team of trained benefit and advice workers are able to support you with your queries and applications.

Where we are

The service is based at Maggie's Manchester. The Christie, 15 Kinnaird Road, M20 4QL.

What patients say

The fact that someone was able to help me complete some of the forms when applying for benefits really helped to reduce my stresses

The financial advice was clear and informed me of what I was entitled to

What we do

Having a serious illness like cancer can trigger financial problems and benefit regulations can be complicated. You can get advice and help from our team.
