Abstract: This scoping exercise was undertaken to identify the current provision of welfare benefit advice services in Fife, any cancer-specific provision in Scotland and gather views on the needs of people aff ected by cancer, the public and key staff groups for a future welfare benefit service in Fife. It addresses 5 main questions: a. What is the current provision of welfare benefit advice services in Fife? b. What is the existing knowledge of welfare benefi ts among staff involved in the care of people aff ected by cancer, and how do they see their role in this issue? c. What is the existing knowledge and involvement of patients and carers in accessing advice and support in pursuit of benefits? d. What barriers exist to professionals and staff in helping people affected by cancer to take up the welfare benefits available? e. What type of welfare benefit service would recognise and meet the needs of people affected by cancer and key staff in Fife?
