Benefits Advice

We are extremely fortunate to have a Representative from Wimbldon Guild who visits the Centre for one morning a fortnight from 10 am until 1.30 pm.

With prior notice he is able to advise on most topics, however if he is unable to deal with your query he will direct you to the appropriate person or organisation. His ’speciality’ is giving advice on benefits i.e. Disability Living Allowance, Attendance Allowance, Carers’ Allowance etc.

If you would like to take advantage of this service, please contact Mark Compton or call 020 8540 5446 to make an appointment.

This service is confidential and free of charge.
