Last week we passed the 4,000 mark for the number of people who ‘​Like’​ us on Facebook, a big vote of confidence for what is a very small organisation.

We want to say a special thank you to ‘​A Way of Seeing’​, who set up and now maintain our Facebook page as well as supplying and editing images for our website.

As a small thank you to everyone who has supported us on Facebook, Benefits and Work and A Way of Seeing are offering some free giveaways. The winners will be drawn from people who have liked our Facebook page by next Thursday, so it’​s still not too late to take part.

Prizes include 5 free Benefits and Work annual subscriptions and two Limited Edition Prints, of the winners’​ choice, from the current collection “​On the Waterfront”​ which can be viewed either on A Way of Seeing Facebook page or on their website .

Below is a selection of feedback about the Benefits and Work website left by Facebook members on our Facebook ‘​wall’​.

“​Good to see you on Facebook. The more people who are aware of Benefits and work the better. I have been a subscriber for 2 years now .Following the advice and tips Your site provided I successfully claimed the benefits which give me quality of life. Through your site I have been able to help others struggling through the benefits maze. I would encourage anyone to subscribe.”​

“​My son has just had his DLA increased from middle rate care to high rate with low rate mobility, thanks to Steve and the Benefit and Work website for helping with the forms, the best £​18 I'​ve spent. Everyone out there please join the group if you can, you won'​t regret it, the information is invaluable.”​

“​Thank you for being a place where the help promised is actually delivered. although I got my dla before joining you after reading your help and advice pages I would have saved myself at least 3 or 4 days reading and rereading the claims pack if I had had the benefit of your advice then. well worth the money.”​

“​My forms had just arrived and I looked on the internet for help. I got the best advice possible from Benefits and work and will spread the links as much as I can.”​

“​Without the mobility component of DLA my wife and I would be practically housebound. people seem to forget the mental stress this can cause on top of any physical disabilities you may have, and the extra suffering caused. So keep up the good work B &​ W.”​
