Benefits & Welfare Rights

Benefits & Welfare Rights Advice

Getting your finances right and finding out what benefits or other allowances you might be entitled to can feel confusing, or worse frightening. We have a wealth of experience in giving benefit advice and obtaining resources and benefits for carers and those they care for.

Our welfare benefits advisors are ready to help you access a wide range of sources of money which you or the person you look after could be entitled to. They can give you the information or help you fill in forms and make the application. We are also funded by Trust for London to provide extensive help with appeals and tribunals.

The welfare benefits support is for all benefits including:


If you are not sure what benefits you may be entitled to, you can request a benefits check for yourself and the people you care for and our knowledgeable and experienced team can help you maximise your income.

Call us on 0207 790 1765 or email to request a benefits check or for any other benefit query.
