Help with benefits
We can help with general benefits advice for people with disabilities.
Every year millions of pounds of welfare benefits are not claimed.
We helped disabled people in Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire claim over £1,000,000 in 2016/17.
Read what people have been saying about the disability benefits advice we provide:
“All very helpful with completing the PIP forms… and also the appeal forms and tribunal forms. Thanks to you I was successful”.
“Helpful and friendly”.
“We were helped to fill out the PIP form correctly first time and reduced our fears over getting it wrong”.
“Friendly and informative”.
“The benefits advisor that I saw was very helpful, and because of his help my husband was awarded Attendance Allowance”.
“Very informative and helpful”.
We can help with general benefits advice for people with disabilities and make appointments with the Benefits Advisors who can give more specific advice such as benefits checks and help with form filling:
- Carers allowance (CA)
- Disability Living Allowance (DLA) – for both children and adults
- Employment Support Allowance (ESA)
- Attendance allowance (AA)
- Personal Independence Payments (PIPs)
- Disability premiums Severe Disability Premium (SDP)
- Housing Benefit and council tax support
- Incapacity Benefit (IB)
- Tax Credits
- Jobseekers Allowance (JSA)
People with disabilities of any age including children who live in Bedford, Luton and Bedfordshire may receive this free advice.

We are very grateful to NatWest for funding our benefits advice service and workshops.

The workshops run most Mondays at The Disability Resource Centre with a maximum of 8 claimants in each session.
