Lithgow BRANCH

Nepean Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Lithgow was formed in 2015. Our local area covers from Little Hartley to Cullen Bullen including Rydal, Lidsdale, Wallerawang, Portland, Meadow Flat, Tarana and many more small villages. No one is alone and Can Assist Lithgow provides assistance for expenses when undergoing treatment for cancer.

The majority of our donations come from the coal mining industry employees and the electricity industry employees. Many local individuals and small business also contribute to enable our group to provide the financial assistance.

Financial Assistance

We understand that families struggle to cope with a reduced income as a result of a cancer diagnosis and that they face increased expenses from travel, accommodation and medical costs.

Our Supporters

If Karen and her husband were living in any other state or territory in the country they would have received a higher rebate – in fact, up to $72 a night higher.

On average, a resident of country NSW will receive $42.32c less a night than the rest of the country. What a disgrace!

Thank you Dr Joe McGirr MP and Helen Dalton MP for helping to bring this injustice to light.
