Other welfare benefits
The Government have recently issued strict guidance advising against all social contact. This means the Local Support Team have had to make the difficult decision to temporarily stop all face to face appointments . We will of course, review this on a regular basis and will resume services once Government advice allows us to do so safely.
You that you can still call and speak to an experienced member of our team should you need advice. The Local Support Team telephone number is 020 7525 2434.
If you’re housebound or have a vulnerable person in your household, we can check that you and your household are receiving all the welfare benefits you're entitled to and help you make a claim.
