Disability Benefits Advisory Service

Shine’s Disability Benefits Advisory Service aims to help more members access key disability benefits.

The new service is open to all members and will offer specialist advice and one-to-one support.

Whether you are a new parent looking after children with multiple needs at home and at school, a young adult at college, work or setting up a home, or someone coping with later in life issues, the new Disability Benefits Advisory Service is here to support you.

We will:

Work with members on a one to one basis to resolve specific benefit related issues.

  • Support members to claim appropriate entitlement to benefits
  • Assist members who've been refused applications for benefits
  • Provide information and tools to help members better understand their rights and entitlement
  • Keep up to date with the latest developments in welfare policy and practice
  • Represent the needs and views of our members at regional and national level

You can connect via your Shine Support and Development Worker, or call us on 01733 555988 or email firstcontact@shinecharity.org.uk and we'll link you up.
