Welfare Rights Advice

The Centre provides advice on a wide range of benefits and welfare issues, including checking your benefit entitlements, help with filling in benefit application forms and advice on what to do if you have been turned down for a benefit.  We can also represent you at an Appeal Tribunal if you need to appeal a decision made by the DWP about your benefits.

The advice and services we provide are free of charge and available to everyone, no matter what your income, employment status, ethnicity, nationality or residential status.  For details of our Equal Opportunities policy, see our Publication page. 

The following are just some of the things we can provide help with: Job Seekers Allowance, Employment Support Allowance, Incapacity Benefit, Disability Living Allowance, Income Support, Child Benefit, Tax Credits, State Pensions and the Pension Credit, Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit, Attendance Allowance, Maternity Allowance, Carers Allowance and Bereavement Allowance.  We can also provide help with sick pay from employers, benefit overpayments, problems with housing and Social Fund applications.

Everyone’s circumstances are different: if you need advice on any of the above, or to see if we can help you with anything else, please call us on 0141 951 4040 to make an appointment.

You can have a look at the Department for Work and Pensions advice on claiming benefits by clicking here.  This link will also give you access to many of the application forms you will need to claim a range of benefits.  We suggest that you get our help by filling in paper-based forms, which you can download and print or have posted to your home address, instead of filling these in with a DWP adviser over the phone.


Debt/Money Advice

The Centre can give you advice on any problems you are having in relation to money, budgeting or debt.  We can assist you in dealing with your creditors in writing, setting up payment plans to make a start on clearing your debt and, in more serious circumstances, help with assessing your eligibility for Low Income Low Asset (LILA) Trust Deeds and applying to have a portion of your debts written off.

We also provide advice relating to rent and mortgage arrears, including dealing with eviction notices, mortgage-to-rent applications and advice if you are considering declaring yourself bankrupt.

Everyone’s circumstances are different: if you need advice on any of the above, or to see if we can help you with anything else, please call us on 0141 951 4040 to make an appointment.  The advice and services we provide are free of charge and available to everyone, no matter what your income, employment status, ethnicity, nationality or residential status.  For details of our Equal Opportunities policy, see our Publication page.
