We offer a free and confidential Welfare Benefits entitlement check for pensioners.

We offer a free and confidential Welfare Benefits entitlement check for pensioners. If any entitlements are identified, we can advise you on how to proceed with making applications and can offer practical support with completion of difficult and off-putting benefits forms. If you and your partner (if you have one) are over state pension age and concerned about making ends meet or managing with a disability or illness, please call our friendly advisors to discuss your situation. Your call is confidential, and we will not share information about you without your consent. Our Advice is Quality Assured.

In the last year (April 2022 - March 2023) we helped older people identify and apply for over £2.25 million in unclaimed benefits! This money improves quality of life, helps to maintain independence, and supports local services.

Home Visits

We can sometimes offer home visits for completion of Attendance Allowance forms. All our visiting volunteers are fully trained and undertake a Disclosure and Barring Services check.

Mrs G says: 'I requested help to fill in the Attendance Allowance form and each of my phone calls was dealt with quickly, efficiently and in a very pleasant manner. When [the volunteer] arrived, she had the most lovely nature and competently tackled the numerous questions with humour and tact. The service I have received from you is faultless.'

If you are needing to complete an Attendance Allowance form yourself, please read our help sheet below.
