What we do
Managing cancer or long term health conditions can be emotionally, physically and financially draining. We give a little help to those that need it.
- Need a little something to get you through an extended hospital stay? We’re here for you.
- Need a little help getting mobility equipment? We’re here for you.
- Need a little help funding extra treatment or rehab? We’re here for you.
We ❤️ the NHS. It can provide world class care irrespective of your income. But it can’t do everything.
Long hospital in-stays can be tough on your mental health. Something like a Kindle, tablet or portable games console can take you into an alternative world and give you a break from the stresses and strains of the hospital environment. Billie’s Fund can help you with that.
Social Services will often provide ‘standard’ equipment to help you manage any disability. For some these aren’t quite right. It’s amazing how much more mobile you can be with a light weight crutch or the difference in confidence you’ll feel with a more discreet ankle and foot splint. Billie’s Fund can help you with that.
Unfortunately not all treatment is available on the NHS and some rehabilitation facilities remain out of reach for those that need it. Costs for these sometimes run into the hundreds of thousands of pounds. We’re a small charity so we can’t cover the costs but if you’re looking for a contribution, we can try and help you with that.
