Citizens Advice Bureaux Northern Ireland

Macmillan Cancer Support

Background

The Macmillan Cancer Support and Citizens Advice partnership provides a dedicated Welfare Rights Service to cancer patients, their families and carers across Northern Ireland. As a service Macmillan Cancer Support is committed to addressing the wider social needs of patients.

Research conducted for Macmillan Cancer Support into benefits advice for people living with cancer and their carers has revealed that financial concerns are second only to physical pain as a cause of stress.

Macmillan has been to the forefront in identifying this area of need and has been running successful welfare rights services across England and Scotland for a number of years. Combining this knowledge with the expertise of Citizens Advice has proved to be a winning formula. Both Macmillan and Citizens Advice have a history of and commitment to identifying areas of social policy and associated need relevant to their objectives. This trend has been advanced within hospital sites as advisors contribute to research by reporting issues from casework, and actively participating in ongoing education and research.
