Putting money back in your pocket
Since it started in 2007 the Benefits and Money Advice service has put £70 million back into our beneficiary's pockets - through increases in benefits, writing off debts and gaining grants - with an average financial gain per person of around £2,800.
Here are two tools (supplied by Turn2us) which may help you.
- Benefits calculatorcheck what you might be entitled to with this free and easy-to-use calculator
- Grants finder- can help you find the most appropriate funds
Without the help we received from The Royal British Legion we would not be living in our home now. We're extremely grateful for the amazing support we received.
