Financial Assistance for Under 25’s

Cancer Council Tasmania offers financial assistance within its Under 25′program for families of children, adolescents and young adults (up to 25 years of age) with cancer, when no other avenues of assistance are available.

For those over 25 years of age, please refer to Cancer Council’s Financial Assistance Program.

Applications for financial assistance for under 25’s must be completed by a social worker or member of a health care team.

Rachel & Jye Fund

The Rachel and Jye Fund was established with the aim of providing financial assistance for Tasmanian families of children/adolescents up to the age of 18 year diagnosed with cancer.

The Rachel & Jye Fund offers:

  • a payment to Tasmanian families when a child or adolescent is diagnosed with cancer and/or experiences a relapse.
  • additional financial assistance to Tasmanian families with children and adolescents with cancer to assist with some of the extra costs when treatment is required interstate.

For further information on the Rachel & Jye Fund contact the Cancer Support Coordinator on 1300 65 65 85.
