Dealing with where to go for advice, what’s available, and what exactly you should be asking for can be confusing, exhausting, and a bit of a minefield.

It’s always a totally unique experience for every single person.

Not one piece of advice suits all, and as a group of volunteers we legally can not give formal professional advice, or promise what outcomes you would receive from the service you get from the DWP, or the benefits you would receive.


However, some of our members have been through the benefits process themselves, and some have been through it with other members who have ME, assisting them to find the right paths to follow, to gain the advice and support they desperately need for dealing with this often frustrating and tiresome process.

We can therefore help direct you to the help you may need, using the buttons below.

Before we get started, if you are in times of such hardship that you do not have enough money to eat, PLEASE contact your nearest CAB (Citizens Advice Bureau) as soon as possible, if not immediately.

This should happen first and foremost, and above all else.
