It is widely recognised that people coping with cancer and the side effects of its treatment are often faced with major financial difficulties. The MCCR has identified a gap with the provision of locally available financial support.

To identify actual need for the service, improve local access to financial assistance and to investigate the viability of establishing a sustainable scheme, a pilot scheme was implemented and ran for 12 months. It was determined after this period that a financial assistance scheme was desperately needed and has been running since October 2012.

The Financial Assistance Scheme (FAS) aims to provide practical financial support for individuals or families struggling with the challenges of a cancer diagnosis and related treatment issues for the population of Snowy Monaro Regional Council.
