Welfare Benefits Advice & Support

What are benefits?

Benefits are important for many people and their welfare, hence why it is so important that you take up what you are entitled to. Most benefits are overseen and arranged by the Government, usually through the Department for Work and Pensions. The main exception is payment for people who are eligible for help with housing costs. This is organised by district and borough councils.
