Home Visiting Service
Age UK Brent has a contract with Citizens Advice Brent to provide free home visits for eligible people. All referrals for a home visit need to come directly to Age UK Brent from Citizens Advice Brent. Unfortunately we are unable to accept any direct referrals.
If you would like a home visit, please phone Citizens Advice Brent on 020 8438 1249 and explain why you need a home visit and they will refer you to us if they feel it is appropriate. The phones are very busy, so you need to keep trying until you get through. You can also send a letter.
