Practical and financial assistance



We can help lighten the financial burden and logistical worries that cancer can bring.

Cancer Council can assist with transport and accommodation costs and in some cases can provide accommodation for regional patients and their carers travelling a long distance for treatment.

We can also put people undergoing treatment in touch with organisations that provide financial counselling and can link patients with utility providers and telecoms who may be able to offer bill payment assistance programs.

Cancer survivor Frank describes how he became a volunteer driver with Cancer Council to provide patients with transport to hospital for treatment:
