Financial Assistance

Can Assist provides financial assistance to people in country NSW affected by cancer. 

We understand that families struggle to cope with a reduced income as a result of a cancer diagnosis and that they face increased expenses from travel, accommodation and medical costs.   

If you have bills which you can not pay as a result of your cancer, we can help. We cannot provide cash or reimburse bills which have already been paid, but we can pay outstanding invoices or provide you with vouchers. 

How to Apply for Financial Assistance

  • Complete the request form.
  • Attach a letter from your health care professional (i.e. local doctor, oncology social worker or oncology nurse).
  • Attach a photocopy of the unpaid bill (or a note requesting food or petrol vouchers).
  • Send the request for financial assistance and your supporting documents to your local branch

Please note completion of the request form does not automatically guarantee financial assistance.
