FINANCIAL STRESSES

Updated: Feb 5, 2019

Money doesn’t matter when you are dealing with health problems….




… until you are faced with #debt.


Dealing with threatening people when you are emotionally exhausted and time stretched is very distressing.


We were referred to #Contact, a charity for families with disabled children. They, amongst many other things, gave us #benefitsadvice and guided us through the various forms we needed to fill.


I recommend visiting their website here: https://contact.org.uk/advice-and-support/benefits-financial-help/benefits-and-tax-credits/


Or better still visit one of their parent advisors who are based at:


• Birmingham Children's Hospital.

• Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.

• Alder Hey Children's Hospital.

• Great North Children's Hospital.

• The Evelina Children's Hospital.

• Great Ormond Street Hospital.


You can find out more about their hospitals project here: https://contact.org.uk/about-us/what-we-do/our-hospitals-project/


They do also have a freephone national helpline (on 0808 808 3555), but I always struggled to get through - they are clearly very popular!
