A lot on your mind?
The BTSS Welfare Grant may help with some of your worries.
A BTSS welfare grant is a one-off payment for member adults, young people or children with brain tumours, to cover a wide range of practical needs. These grants do not cover treatment or medication, but are designed to ease hardship caused by additional costs of travel to appointments, medical bills, care or retraining, for example. This can include things such as household bills, extra clothing, or a much needed break. Every month we aim to give at least one grant to a needy beneficiary.
Note: As of April 2018, we have updated the eligibility criteria to better suit the needs of beneficiaries.
Please read the Welfare Grant Brochure for more details about eligibility, terms and conditions.
