Welfare & Benefits Overview

Welfare & Benefits

It is very easy to miss out on benefits which you need and are entitled to, but that you either don’t know about or the process of applying for them is highly complicated. It may also be the case that your application has been unfairly treated and you need to appeal.

We can give you clear information about which benefits you are entitled to, and then help you apply for them. We can help you fill in the forms, which can run to 40 pages and which have brought tears to our client’s eyes – the questions are complex and the answers are very often far from obvious.

Where it is necessary, we can also assist you in appealing against a decision limiting or removing your benefits.
