The Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland Macmillan Cancer Support Project is available to anyone overthe age of 50 who has been affected by cancer. 

We can offer you support if you’ve been affected by cancer in any way,



whether you are the patient, carer or worried about a friend or family member. Support is available at whatever stage of the cancer journey you are at. This project is provided in partnership between Age UK  Leicester Shire & Rutland and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Accessing practical support for independent living
Support with claiming welfare benefits
