Contact - Benefits and Advice Helpline
This is a free, confidential helpline for parents of disabled children living in England, run by Contact offering high quality and up-to-date advice on welfare benefits.
Contact is a charity for families with disabled children.
Contact advisers will make sure that parents have the right information to make informed choices about issues such as:
- moving into work
- benefit options when a child reaches 16
- how to use self-directed support to take greater control over how services are provided to their disabled child.
Contact this service and they will be able to offer you an appointment with a welfare expert to discuss your situation. They can then take you through the latest relevant benefits advice and run through any other financial help you may be entitled to, to maximise your income.
Visit the CaF website for information on changes to the welfare system including more about the personal independence payment (PIP) and universal credit.
