Welfare Grants

A Welfare Grants Fund is administered by the Prostate Cancer Foundation to assist patients and families who are experiencing some hardship related to their treatment for prostate or testicular cancer. The grants are provided to assist with expenses relating to transport and accommodation, counselling and specialised services or equipment needed and are limited to $500. The grants are not available for medical, pharmaceutical or treatment costs (except physiotherapy through Pinc & Steel). Please note: If you wish to apply for financial assistance for the Prost-FIT programme please click here for application details.
