The financial inclusion project can now support carers of all ages and their families!
Carers of East Lothian have secured funding from the Fairer East Lothian fund to support carers of any age and their families living in East Lothian, to maximise their income.
We are able to offer home visits to check you are getting all income/benefits you are entitled to and also support you to complete the appropriate forms. Information and advice will be available on welfare benefits including:
- Disability Living Allowance, (changing to Personal Independence Payment June 2013)
- Attendance Allowance
- Housing & Council Tax benefits
- Pension Credit
- Universal Credit
- all working age benefits
As well as information and direct support with completing claim forms, we can offer phone support and make referrals to other services on your behalf.
