The Smile of Arran Trust aims to make a difference to individuals and families who have been affected by a brain tumour and their primary goal is to provide financial assistance. Here at CLIC Sargent we share that goal and look to support all children and young people aged 0 to 24 years old with the financial and practical implications of their cancer diagnosis.
Both charities are really excited to be working together to support our visions.
What is Arran’s Grant?
Arran’s grant is a financial payment up to £150 for a child or young person aged between 0 and 19 years old with a brain tumour or brain cancer to spend on anything they need.
We know that many families and young people have to bear significant additional financial costs as a result of a cancer diagnosis.
Our research report Counting the Costs of Cancer, showed that, on average, parents and young people spend £367 and £277 respectively on extra expenses every month as a result of a cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The Smile of Arran Trust and CLIC Sargent hope that through this partnership we can help to reduce some of the financial impact of a cancer diagnosis.
How can I access Arran’s Grant?
If you or your child is diagnosed with a brain tumour or brain cancer, are aged between 0 to 19 years old and already have a CLIC Sargent Social Worker, please speak to them directly.
