Benefits and Work has been providing detailed and up-to-date information on benefit entitlement, guides to making successful claims and support for members via its forum, for more than 10 years.{jcomments on}

We are now piloting a consultancy service and are looking for a spread of different agencies from across the UK to work with. On a trial basis we are offering free support for 4 hours a month for a period of 3 months to fully funded agencies.  There will be absolutely no charge to your agency and no requirement that you sign up for a paid-for service at the end of the trial, though we will  ask for your feedback.

For the pilot service we are offering support via email only and any documents you want us to review will have to be scanned and emailed to us.

Our experienced welfare rights workers can help your organisation in connection with all aspects of ESA, PIP and DLA, including:

• Checking through claim forms and giving guidance on presenting pertinent information

• Giving advice on the merits of your client’s case

• Helping you prepare a detailed Mandatory Reconsideration request

• Giving expert guidance on your appeal submissions or your grounds for appeal

• Preparing appeals and/or appeal submissions

• Giving technical support and guidance on taking cases to Upper Tribunal

• Carrying out research on case law, putting the terms into plain language for you to present to the DWP or HMCTS

If you are interested in finding out more, please drop us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will send you a brief questionnaire to complete.
