Our team of welfare advisers can offer you free support and advice. We’ll tell you what benefits you’re entitled to and help you with any applications.
Our areas of support include the following:
- Universal Credit
- Personal Independent Payment (PIP)
- Disability Living Allowance
- Carers Allowance
- Housing Benefit
- Council Tax
- Appeals and mandatory reconsiderations
- Spare Room Subsidy (bedroom tax)
- Budgeting advice
- Discretionary Housing Payments (DHP)
We can also help you understand and respond to any letters you receive about benefits.
If you’re struggling to pay, or falling behind with your rent, we’ll tell you if you’re eligible for any benefits. We can also help you contact your Charlton Triangle Incomes Officer to set up a payment plan to repay the rent you owe.
The New Leaf Advice Centre also offers a range of other in-house services, which we can refer you to. These include the following:
- Live well
- Debt advice
Occasionally, we may need to point you in the direction of other organisations, to make sure you’re getting all the support you’re entitled to.
