    Hello @nanamum   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you joining and sharing.

    Understand benefits are complex and confusing. I have and do contact my local CAB for all form filling in.

    You need the right and correct information. I found need to know so made an appointment. Having some one face to face can be reassuring and useful.

    Simple to understand something to consider.

    I know there will be members of our community or team to help and give you advice.

    We are a supportive friendly community.

    Care and share.

    Please ask if we can advise on anything some one will know.

    Please take care
