Welfare Advice

Many people tell us that, when living with a life-limiting illness, money worries and managing care-related paperwork can be overwhelming and confusing.

Our Welfare Advisor can give advice and support to you and your family about financial and practical issues like disabled parking badges, making wills and appointing a lasting power of attorney.

We can also help you apply for benefits that you might be eligible for, for example travel costs if you need to go to hospital for treatment, prescription costs and the Personal Independence Payment (PIP).

We can also support carers who might also qualify for benefits, or need some practical support of their own. Please see our Carer Support pages for more information.

All of our support is free to anyone in our referral area of West Sussex and East Surrey.  If you would like to see or speak to our Welfare Advisor or find out more about how we can help you, please ask any of the St Catherine’s Hospice Team or call 01293 447345.

You can find downloadable leaflets on our Welfare Support service here.
