Merriwa BRANCH

Hunter New England Region

Assisting our community, locally…


Can Assist Merriwa was formed in 2020. The branch was established to financially support community members of Merriwa and surrounding settlements so their road to wellness is somewhat alleviated.

Areas Serviced: Cassilis, Merriwa, Sandy Hollow

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

Our Branch would not exist without our members, volunteers and supporters both from within the community and further afield. Can Assist expresses our thanks.

  • Merriwa IGA
  • Merriwa Home Timber & Hardware

Utility bills aren't the first thing that comes to mind when you think of cancer related costs.

However, it is something that becomes an added stress once you've paid for prescriptions, travel to treatment and all the other unexpected costs.

If you live in rural or regional NSW, we provide financial assistance with cancer related costs.
