Caroline Barry is Mesothelioma UK’s Benefits Advisor. In the 2017/18 financial year Caroline supported 178 patients/carers to make claims for benefits and state compensation, helping them access over £3.4 million in lump sum payments and benefits.
If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, there are certain benefits that you may be able to claim along with a government lump sum compensation. You have a legal entitlement to some of these benefits and they are not all affected by your level of household income or savings.
Caroline is there to help you identify what benefits you are entitled to and to help you apply for them. There are also lots of leaflets on our website on the different benefits available.
