Benefits help info

Your benefit rights
-- what you can do to defend your entitlements

The best-known advice agencies mainly tell people how to comply with
the rules. Most of them don’t give us the information we need to help press for our rights and any concessions made. The information here comes from sharing our experiences with other grassroots groups, claimants, anti-poverty campaigners, single
mums, tenants’ rights and disability campaigners, and lawyers
bringing legal challenges.

See our COVID changes page for info on benefit assessments by telephone, benefit appeals held remotely, and more.
