We’re here for more than your housing needs, and can help you look after you and your family’s wellbeing too. One of the ways we can do that is through providing a comprehensive welfare benefits advice service. The service will help to maximise your household income by identifying any unclaimed benefits and, where necessary, assisting you through the application process.
This service is now being provided by our new Welfare Benefits Advisor, Paul Pearson. This is an important service for our customers just now as many of you are facing pressures brought about by recent changes and reductions in the benefits system.
Prior to starting employment with Ancho Paul worked for over 30 years at an advice centre in Glasgow. His work included setting up and running advice surgeries at a variety of housing associations across the Glasgow area and beyond.
We are keen to offer the opportunity of providing benefit checks to all of our customers to ensure that all possible entitlements are maximised with a view to giving our customers the best way forward in trying to alleviate the financial impact of Covid and benefit changes. An initial check should take no more than 15 minutes of your time and can be carried out by telephone or Microsoft Teams.
If you would like us to carry out a benefits check for you or anyone in your household please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01294 313121.
