Our team of advisers provide information and advice about all welfare benefits issues from checking eligibility and helping with claims, to appealing decisions made by the Department for Work and Pensions and Barrow Borough Council’s Revenues & Benefits department. We can help with Universal Credit, Jobseekers allowance, income support, housing benefit and council tax support, pension credit, tax credits, employment support allowance and disability benefits, plus many more.
We also work in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to provide a specialist benefits advice service for people affected by cancer. Call 01229 830367 to ask about this service or make a referral.
Call us on 0808 2787 817. Our First Contact Adviser will ask you questions so that we fully understand your situation and can then advise you about your options. At this stage it is important that you have letters and forms relating to your situation and details of your household income. If your benefits enquiry is complex or you want to appeal a decision to refuse you benefit we will make an appointment with one of our advisers after we have made an initial assessment.
