Problems with social security benefits

SinceĀ legal aid endedĀ 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.

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