Welfare Benefit Service

Welfare Reform

Since 2010 the UK Government has been implementing a wide range of amendments to the welfare benefits system.
Their aim is to get Britain working, fight poverty, support the most vulnerable and help people break the cycle of benefit dependency.

These changes are complex and can have a considerable impact on people.

We provide:

  • Welfare benefits advice
  • Support with appeals against benefit decisions
  • Referrals to other organisations when needed.

Our aim is to help you keep your tenancy.
