The Western Isles Cancer Care Initiative (WICCI) is a registered local charity. As a charity we have 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 (over and above those supported by Patient Travel) 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.

Get in touch if you have any issues or financial burdens arising from a cancer diagnosis or treatment.
