    Hello the benefits and works site has a lot of information regarding the type of information you require but you may have to join to get full access which may seem expensive but if you win your case it’s worth the outlay and like me you can download all relevant information in pdf format for future reading and numerous updates when they are published, you sometimes have to spend a little to gain a lot.

    Hi,

    It will totally depend what's available in your local area, welfare rights or a law centre are good places to start. I believe this link was put in your last thread, did you put your postcode in to see what's available in your area? If not then this is the only way to know. https://advicelocal.uk/

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Advice centres like welfare rights or a law centre won't charge for representation.

    Enter your postcode and then chose the advice topic, which needs to be welfare benefits and then click go, it will give you a list of what's available in your area.

    If you use the link Poppy gave, put your post code in and then scroll to the bottom of the page it shows a map with what's available near you.

    For me it's only citizens advice or a disability advice service but neither were helpful due to restrictions I have.  In fact the disability service were surprisingly unhelpful, I obviously have the wrong kind of disability! :D

    If you're still struggling to understand that page, feel free to message me your post code and I'll let you know what's available and how far each on is. :)

    I can see that disability law services is on that list, i'd advise contacting them to see if they can help you.
