Share Make Money One Less Worry

Event Details

Leeds City Council’s Macmillan Welfare Rights Team are holding a conference to celebrate their 10th anniversary. The main focus of the conference will be to share good practice and emphasise why the provision of information and advice relating to money can be just as important as medical assistance to those affected by cancer and their families. According to Macmillan 4 in 5 people with cancer are £570 a month worse off as a result of their diagnosis which is why they are running a campaign “Make Money One Less Worry”
