Money & Benefits

 

 

One Voice helps people with benefits application forms, evidence gathering, and benefits appeals.

We will also represent you at Benefits Appeal Tribunals on Disability benefit Appeals.

For people with money difficulties we help you sort out your debts and get back on track.

At the moment we do not have any funding to do this work, so the help we can provide is limited.

If you want to use this service, you must contact One Voice as soon as you have a problem with money or benefits

This gives us time to help you to sort things out.

Don’t delay contacting us if your benefit application is refused – appeals concern themselves with the date the decision was made, not the date on which your tribunal is heard. So your case needs to be prepared, and evidence needs to be secured as near as possible to the date the decision was made by the DWP.
