Welfare Benefits Advice



Jenny Richards Welfare Benefit Advisor is at the Beacon Resource Centre on Thursday mornings. Please note new extended opening hours from 9am-1pm and please telephone for an appointment (though it's possible to pop in without one and Jenny can usually see you).

It's a good idea to have your benefits checked regularly to make sure you are getting the right amount as the regulations are changing all the time.

If you have health problems there are many benefits you can claim which can double your weekly income, especially if you are over 60 years of age.

In the past 12 months Jenny has got over £51,000 for residents of the estate—what can she do for you? It's always worth coming in to check—it's a free and confidential service for everybody and she will be very pleased to see you.

Benefits dealt with include Disability Living Allowance , Attendance Allowance, Carers Allowance, Housing and Council Tax Benefit, Working and Family tax credits and many more. Access to legal advice available as well.
