StepChange Debt Charity and Macmillan. Working together.

When you're affected by cancer it can be tough on your finances. By providing free debt advice, we hope that you'll be in a better position to face more serious issues in your life.

At some point in their life, many people will have to deal with cancer. Either they’re diagnosed with it themselves, or a friend, family member or colleague will suffer from this devastating disease.

Cancer can take over your life. It can dominate your thoughts, your decisions and your plans for the future, and trying to deal with debt while also facing something like cancer can quickly become overwhelming. 

We know from talking to clients that cancer doesn't just affect those who are diagnosed. Many people reduce work hours or leave employment entirely to support a loved one through treatment.

 


Macmillan found that over four in five (83%) people are financially worse off as a result of a cancer diagnosis. The average impact of those affected was £570 a month.

Debt isn't the only problem

Macmillan’s ongoing fight against cancer takes many forms. They've recently launched a section of their website dedicated to offering information on any debt or money issues a person dealing with cancer may be facing. You can also find information on other issues such as advice on care packages, or what kind of benefits you may be entitled to.

By putting all of these resources together, Macmillan hopes that they can save you time and worry. If you need free and confidential debt advice we can help. Our ‘how we can help you’ page tells you all about our support and the different debt solutions we offer.
