Benefits

Support for people on low incomes or specific needs. 

Here to help

Deciding to apply for benefits can feel like a big step. It may seem better to avoid it until you think you really need help, but our advice is not to wait. When you claim benefits like Universal Credit, you won’t be paid for the first few weeks while your claim is being processed. Don’t delay the decision until things are urgent – start the process as soon as you think you’ll need it.

Here are some organisations that can help:
