Age UK Richmond upon Thames works with the Adult & Community Services Department of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. This service provides advice on welfare benefits and also on other services concerning people over state pension age that may improve their quality of life.
We have a team of benefits advisers who can provide the following:
- Face-to-face benefits advice to people over state pension age in their own homes
- Help with applying for grants towards the purchase of white goods (like cookers or washing machines) or help towards utility bills.
- Face-to-face benefits advice by appointment at our offices based in Parkway House, Sheen Lane, East Sheen, London SW14 8LS
- Follow-up discussions to determine if additional help is needed.
Even if you're claiming some benefits, you may be entitled to others. Use the Age UK online benefits checker to find out if you are entitled to more money than you realised:
