Benefits Information

At PSC Support, we are not experts on the benefits system, but there are organisations available who have provided guidance to members in the past:

Age UK is the charity formed from Help the Aged and Age Concern. They aim to provide older people with information and advice on anything from health to housing. They have a free national information line, open 365 days a year from 8am to 7pm. Their website has a wealth of information, some of which is applicable to young and old alike.

 

The Citizens Advice Bureau is a charity which provides a public information service, designed to empower people with the information they need to solve their own problems or signpost them to appropriate advice when necessary.

 

Crohn's and Colitis UK  prvide extensive information on benefits for people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

 

 

Disability Rights UK  provides helplines and information on benefits, personal budgets and other products and services developed by and for disabled people.

 

 

A number of PSCers have found the UK National Kidney Federation to be of help when it comes to identifying benefits for themselves and their carers.
