Western Isles Cancer Care Initiative

The Western Isles Cancer Care Initiative (WICCI) has developed a unique partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to address needs and provide support for specific issues faced by cancer patients and their families throughout the Western Isles.

Up to £500 per year is available to individuals affected by cancer and can be used to support costs such as; basic living expenses, travel costs and specialist equipment or support required as a result of a cancer diagnosis, treatment or recovery.

Individuals should firstly submit an Enquiry Form to the WICCI office to determine eligibility. You will then be asked to complete an Application Form which will ask for specific information on your current situation and the circumstances for which you require assistance. You will be asked to provide information of your current care or treatment.

All information is treated in the strictest confidence, and assessments of funding are presented to the WICCI Trustees anonymously.
