Welfare Benefits Advice

Hello There,

My name is Claire Roberts and I am the Welfare Benefits Advisor at Bridgend Carers Centre. The service has been in operation for just over 5 years and has proved to be a very well utilised service by unpaid carers across Bridgend County Borough.

During this time, an amazing £2,352,135.14 has been claimed for carers and the person they care for. This highlights the problems that carers have in enforcing their rights and is a reminder of how unwieldy and complicated the benefit system is.

I can advise and assist on all aspects of welfare rights including form-filling; checking benefit entitlement; challenging decisions and advising on appeal procedures.

Referrals can be made to myself by phoning Bridgend Carers Centre on 01656 658479, you can leave a message if I am unavailable and I will return your call as soon as possible.

Please note that requests for assistance in form-filling /challenging decisions / appeal procedures have an average waiting time of 3 weeks. As I am so busy I am sorry but I am unable to represent claimants at appeal hearings.
