Benefit Drop in Sessions

Do you have a long term illness or impairment and are unsure whether you may qualify for disability benefits?

Are you claiming disability benefits and would like to know if there any other financial schemes or services to which you may be entitled?

Has your claim for disability benefits been refused or has your benefit entitlement been reduced?


I’m waiting to hear from you!


Coming to Barrowcliff in January!

The initial benefit drop-in session at Wreyfield Methodist Church has been organised for Monday 16th January from 10.00 am to 12.30 pm. The sessions will take place once a fortnight over the next six months. If you are a disabled person or carer, live in the Barrowcliff area and have a problem with your benefits, I'll be pleased to see you! Or if you know someone else in this position, please tell them about the drop-in sessions!! All sessions are free of charge. Tim Vasey - DAG Manager
