Benefits and Universal Credit advice

The benefits system can be tricky to navigate, so it's good to have an expert guide. Our welfare rights officers can check that you are receiving all the money you are entitled to, help you make a claim and also appeal decisions you don't agree with.

Budgeting

For friendly ongoing budgeting support, our customer support team can help you. Whether it's finding cheaper goods and services, applying for grants and trust funds or helping with managing your bills, there are lots of ways to make your money go further.

Banks and credit unions

You will need access to a bank account if you claim Universal Credit. We can give you advice on opening one and what you'll need. We'd also recommend opening a Credit Union account. These allow you to make regular savings and take out an affordable loan should you need one.
