We've partnered with Rushmoor Citizens Advice to provide a weekly benefits clinic offering specialist benefits advice and assistance to people affected by brain tumours.
On average, each person who we've helped via the benefits clinic is nearly £5,000 better off.
For some people, a brain tumour diagnosis might mean that they're no longer able to work and earn a steady income. This could be due to the symptoms of having a brain tumour, such as fatigue and cognitive difficulties. For carers, it might be because they need to care for their loved ones on a daily basis.
Expert help and advice
Our benefits clinic takes place every Tuesday, with telephone appointments available from 9.30am to 4pm.
Our benefits advisor can answer your questions about claiming benefits and help explain what financial support, unemployment benefits or disability benefits you might be entitled to, such as statutory sick pay (SSP), Attendance Allowance or the Personal Independence Payment.
They can also assist with:
The benefits application process
The benefits appeal process
Benefits eligibility criteria
General benefits enquiries
In total, over a 12 month period, the financial difference that this service will make for the families helped is predicted to be nearly £420,000. On average, each person we've helped is £5,000 better off.

“We know how much of a difference The Brain Tumour Charity makes to the lives of people living with a brain tumour, and we hope the free, confidential and impartial advice we can offer on more practical matters will supplement this so that together, we can reduce the suffering of those living with this devastating disease."
