What is social work support?

Our palliative-care social workers can guide you with practical advice and emotional support, dealing with any immediate worries as well as helping you with your hopes and wishes for the future.


What kind of things can you help me with?

Lots of things such as education, housing, finances, charity applications, transition, equipment and holidays. We can also support you with making funeral arrangements and getting access to statutory services.
