Macmillan Welfare Rights service

Perth & Kinross Council receives funding from Macmillan Cancer Support to provide an enhanced Welfare Rights service to people affected by cancer throughout Perth and Kinross.

This enhanced service includes:

  • undertaking benefit checks
  • arranging for benefits to be claimed and forms completed
  • lodging benefit appeals and representation at appeal tribunals
  • providing basic money/debt advice
  • giving advice on any other available support you may be entitled to.   

How do I access the service?
