Welcome to advicelocal, a new UK-wide service from the advice charity Lasa.
Whilst benefits can seem complicated, you'll find links to information to help you navigate the system, including to local information on benefits and support available from your local council.
Whether you're missing out on benefits or having problems with a claim, our welfare benefit links will help you find out more about your rights, and where to find independent advice organisations in your area who can help you get the information and support that you're looking for.
Questions that we can help with include: What benefits you might be entitled to; how to challenge a benefit decision; your local council's approach to discretionary housing payments, and (if they have one) its local welfare assistance scheme.
