Get a CLIC Sargent Grant

It’s not right that young people and parents have to worry about money when they need to focus on treatment and all that comes with it. So CLIC Sargent gives various grants, right from the moment of diagnosis, to help young people and families cope financially.

Our Registration Grant

Cancer costs from the moment of diagnosis, but there’s no financial support sitting there waiting for you. To help with the immediate costs of cancer, we give a grant of £170. Most young people and families use it to cover sudden expenses like:

  • Travel to and from hospital, and parking there
  • Extra food costs
  • Increasing household bills and essential items
  • Increasing phone bills so you can keep in touch with family and friends
  • Private tuition to reduce the impact on education
  • Accommodation near the hospital
  • Childcare for siblings

How to apply

If you are a young person (diagnosed between ages 16-24) or a parent of a child aged 0-15, you can apply for this grant by filling out the application form below. Your social worker can guide you through this too, and will help if you’re not able to access a computer or Wi-Fi, or need help reading the form.

If you don’t have a CLIC Sargent social worker you can contact the Grants team to see whether you’re eligible on or 0300 330 0803.
