Any person may be eligible to receive health benefits from the Government, depending on their circumstances.
The benefits available include:
- Attendance Allowance
- Disability Living Allowance
- Personal Independence Payment
These benefits are based on a person’s health, taking into account any physical, sensory or mental health issues; they are not means-tested. At Age UK Sevenoaks & Tonbridge, our specialist advisors can make an assessment on your own situation and determine whether you’d be entitled to receive one of these benefits, in order to improve the quality of your life. Our advisor can also help you to complete the application form if necessary.
You can find a Local Information Pack about Health & Wellbeing which you can download and print out on our Information & Advice downloads page. It includes local support groups if you have a health condition.
To speak to one of our advisors contact us on 01732 454108 or please contact us.
