Mrs Martin, aged 50, from Deptford was the victim of a severe stroke that left her completely housebound. She was unable to carry on working full time and couldn’t afford to pay her rent or Council Tax. Her children did their best to support her financially but were unable to cope.
Our welfare benefits advisors worked with Mrs Martin and identified that she was entitled to nearly £8,000 in backdated benefits including Personal Independence Payment, Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit.
If you are struggling with your rent or confused about what benefits you are entitled to our specialist welfare advisors can give you free advice on:
- Understanding changes to benefits
- Managing debt
- Budgeting advice
