Our Targeted advice project can make sure you're claiming the benefits you're entitled to, help you fill in forms, and help you appeal any benefits decisions you're unhappy with.

People living on or applying for state benefits sometimes receive decisions they disagree with. Our staff can help you lodge an appeal against a benefit decision and then represent you at tribunal hearings.

Did you know the UK Government is currently changing its benefits system? You can find out more about this from our benefit changes web page.
