Problems with social security benefits

Since legal aid ended for benefits advice our capacity to offer casework has been significantly reduced. However, we can still provide general advice on all aspects of benefits and more specialised help on some. For example if you are experiencing problems with Tax Credits we have a specialist who may be able to help.

If you need a benefit check you can ring Turn2Us on 0808 802 2000 or use their on line benefit checker

We also have several projects working in different ways to help people affected by welfare reform. Many of these work with other organisations. If you think you might need help ask any organisations who support you if they have such a partnership.

Potteries Gold works with people and community groups affected by welfare reform. For further details of the activities they run click here.   

Universal Credit - Help to Claim service offers support to people during the claim process for Universal Credit. For further details click here.
