Welfare rights

The council's welfare rights team is a small team who primarily train other advisers on welfare benefits.

We also offer advice and representation to people who have been turned down for benefits. We can be contacted on our public advice line on Monday 10am to 1pm on 01273 291116.

If you need basic information about benefits, go to a local Jobcentre plus office or visit GOV.UK.

If you require more in-depth advice contact the welfare rights team or one of the many advice agencies in the city. It is important to get information early on so that you do not miss out on money that you are owed as benefits are difficult to get backdated.
