Welfare Benefits & Tax Credits

Once we know your circumstances, we can explain the Welfare Benefits which you could claim. We can supply or help you fill in application forms and take the pain out of the paperwork. Some Benefit applications, such as Welfare Provision Grants can be made over the phone and we also support you with appeals and tribunals including PIP and Universal Credit.

 

Debt & money advice and budgeting

We help to reschedule debt repayments. If your problem is urgent, we will try and fight your case with bailiffs, courts and debt collectors. We can help you to budget better for the future and we will make sure that you have claimed all of the Welfare Benefits that you could gain. We can’t make your debts go away, but we can make them easier to manage.

 

Utility Bills

If you have problems understanding your bills, or if you want to try to get a cheaper deal, we will make the phone calls to the utility companies on your behalf.

We can point you to places which supply cheap household goods or things for your baby.

When we offer help with any and all of the problems above, we include in our work letter writing, form filling, phone calls and counselling. If you are afraid to talk to such people as the local council, the courts, the bailiffs, and the Department of Works and Pensions, we will give them a call or write a letter on your behalf.

We go in person to assist and support people at courts, the Council offices, doctors, social services, and Tribunals so that we can act as your advocates and make sure that they receive the justice which they deserve.
