Places to get help applying for benefits

Postby Ldyalb » Wed Mar 28, 2012 10:33 am

I found out just now from another poster in the Living With Fibromyalgia section that the Princess Royal Trust help people with benefit claims. I looked it up and have a link further down this post. I'll put links to some of the other organisations which can help with this. I never knew about the PRT before, or that they helped disability benefit claimants. Hopefully this will be useful to some peeps on here :-)

As we've got a stickied topic with details of helpful sites on it here viewtopic.php?f=11&t=12519 do you want me to merge this into it, then it won't drop down into the older topics as new ones are started.

That's a good idea Flup, makes sense to have them in there so they don't get lost :)

TaDah!!! :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: All merged together so they don't get lost in with the other topics :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

If anyone comes across any other sites they have found informative and helpful, if let me or one of my fellow mods know about it, we can add it to the list :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

They are open Mondays and Fridays between 10-12 and they will be able to give you some more information on what help you may be eligible for as well as assistance in applying for these benefits.
