Benefits Advice

young family heritageblueIf you are unsure about your entitlement to benefits, our advisors may be able to advise you. We can help with the various unemployment, disability and sickness benefits, income support, tax credits, housing benefit, council tax support and the social fund and local welfare assistance.

We can give practical assistance by helping you to work out your entitlement to benefits, maybe help you fill in the appropriate forms and help you to write review and appeal letters. 

For access details, please click How we can help.

We also press for improvements in social security law by using our knowledge of how people are affected by the current rules.

What customers say

“I was very low when I came to the CAB, with debts and problems everywhere. I am now a lot happier, as I pay one sum of money each month and get left alone by creditors”.
