Driving, Insurance & Financial Help
The financial costs of cancer can easily mount up, which can add to concerns about living with Neuroendocrine Cancer, so finding out how you can make your money work for you – and whether you are entitled to financial assistance such as benefits, grants and other monies can ease the strain.
Home insurance consists of buildings insurance and contents insurance, which can be bought separately or together from the same provider
- Buildings insurance could cover the cost of repairing or rebuilding the structure of your home if it’s damaged by an event you’re insured for – such as a fire, flood or storm. It also offers cover for any permanent fixtures and fittings, like your kitchen and bathroom. Buildings insurance can also cover outside structures connected to your home, such as fences, garages and pipes. The need to have buildings insurance may depend on whether you have a mortgage or not, or are renting (when it is usually the landlord’s responsibility)
- Home contents insurance typically covers everything you’d take with you if you moved and also usually includes your carpets too. There may be some exceptions to this rule so you’ll need to check the details of individual policies to be sure – look for the definition of contents in your policy booklet.

Like travel insurance, life insurance becomes more expensive and harder to find once you’ve been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Cancer.
We are very aware that there are costs associated with getting to and from hospital appointments, especially for investigations and treatments. We really want to be able to support our community, and have therefore developed a compassionate travel welfare fund. The objective of this fund is to provide financial support to Neuroendocrine Cancer patients and, where required, an accompanying family member, clinical advocate or carer, for travel to expert clinical centres to access treatment related scans and treatments.
The request for financial support must come from one of your specialist clinical team and there is a form to complete above.
Clinical teams will be made aware of this fund. We truly hope that this will provide some relief to those who need it.
