This form is to be used by health professionals to refer service users into the Macmillan Welfare Benefits Service at Northumberland Citizens Advice. Please do not forward this referral form to service users to self refer.
Our Macmillan Welfare Benefits Caseworkers can assist those affected by cancer and can work out what financial help they be entitled to and help them to access it. We provide confidential advice on which benefits they can claim, help them to apply for benefits and for one-off grants to help with energy costs or travel costs to hospital appointments for example. We can also help appeal against decisions on benefit entitlement
Please send the referral through as soon as it is agreed in order for us to provide a timely response to the service user.
