We give advice on all Welfare benefits, specialising in disability benefits as we have identified it as being the largest and most important concern amongst our community. We also offer free legal advice on housing issues and debt issues, from fuel and utility debts to Council Tax arrears. We support our service users in a holistic manner to ensure that the approach we take when giving support and advice is exhaustive. We are extremely proud of the service that we provide, we continue to develop our advice service so that we can support the communities of Vauxhall and the Liverpool City Region for the foreseeable future.

The majority of our service users are vulnerable people and who often have illnesses, poor mental health and disabilities. They suffer from poverty and increasing debts often due to low income levels in the region. The Centre provides advice and support to many disabled peopled, carers, people with illiteracy, learning difficulties and mental health issues based in the Liverpool City Region.

Our service aims are;

  2. Make available to people advice and representation to which they would not otherwise have access so that they can better assert their rights
  3. Provide a high quality, independent advice service which is free to users.
  4. Reduce poverty and improve people’s sense of health and well-being and promote independence for disabled people and their carers through the provision of welfare law advice.
