What can we help with?

We can:

Assess the situation, and ensure the correct benefits are being received.
Visit at home if needed, or at a community location to suit.
Follow benefits application through to award, to ensure the best possible chance of success.
Look for other grants and financial support that may help.
Offer advice and support you with Richmond Council's Fuel Grant Scheme application.

Even if you are already claiming benefits, you may be entitled to others - let us check.

We would like to thank The Richmond Charities for supporting Age UK Richmond as one of their 11 local charities whom they assist with funding towards small welfare grants for older people in need. Read more about the work of The Richmond Charities by visiting the website below:
