When someone in your family is affected by a life limiting illness you can be faced with new and difficult challenges. Whether you need help with a social, financial or personal issue, our social work team is on hand to help you to find practical solutions.

The team can liaise with other agencies on your behalf, help you to set up care and refer you to other sources of support. We have a specialist benefits advisor to help you out if you are experiencing financial worries about unpaid bills, extra expenses or reduced income. We will provide you with up to date information and help you to navigate your way through the situation, easing money worries and helping you to adjust.

If you believe that you may benefit from social work support or benefits advice, please speak to a member of staff at the Hospice or your GP.
