Whether you are unemployed, sick or disabled, retired, a carer, on low wages, or finding it difficult to manage, the benefits system provides practical help and additional income.
If your circumstances change there may be extra benefits or tax credits you can claim. Or you might stop being entitled to some benefits. The help you will get will depend on your individual circumstances or a particular event in your life you are facing.
The system is complicated, so we provide expert advice and assistance.
We can deal with anything from general enquires and specialist problems, to emergencies.
We identify unclaimed benefits and assist in claiming the whole range of social security and local authority benefits and tax credits.
When appropriate we may be able to represent you at appeal tribunals.
