Planning your finances

A cancer diagnosis can lead to extra expenses. It may also affect your income. Planning your finances can help you cope with these changes.

Working out your weekly or monthly budget is an important first step to managing your everyday finances.

A budget is a record or prediction of how much money you have coming in and going out. Once you’ve created a budget, it will help you understand what you need to do next.
