Speciality Disability related benefits advice for Bristol
We can advise and support you in applying for Disabled people’s related welfare benefits
What we do
We understand that knowing the financial support you’re entitled to as Disabled person can be confusing and the process can be complicated. We can support Disabled people in Bristol and surrounding areas to access the support they need.
Our trained advisors will:
- Give you advice over the phone
- Support you to complete an application for Disabled people’s benefits: Employment Support Allowance (ESA), Personal Independence Payment (PIP), Disability Living Allowance for Children (DLA), and Attendance Allowance (AA)
- Offer advice and support with mandatory reconsiderations and appeals
We offer support via a range of telephone and face to face visits to meet everyone’s access requirements.
We also partner with a consortium of agencies across Bristol as part of ACFA to offer you the best support possible, and can signpost you towards these for advice in areas WECIL are unable to help you with, such as legal advice. These include: North Bristol Advice, South Bristol Advice, St Paul’s Advice Centre, Citizens Advice Bureau Bristol,Talking Money, and Bristol Law Centre.
Our services are developed and tested by users with a range of different impairments, to help you make the best choices for you and the Disabled People in your life.
We have worked alongside our benefits advisors and the WECIL Community to produce some self-help films to guide you through the process of claiming a Disabled person’s benefits. We advise that you watch these films before contacting us as they might be able to answer some of your questions.
The films have been co-produced by members of the WECIL community who have been through the process of claiming these benefits themselves.
