Welfare Rights

Hello my name is Denise,
The Welfare Rights Service is aimed at advising and supporting people experiencing mental health difficulties living in Edinburgh with their benefits.  We can offer benefit checks to look at your entitlement and help you apply for benefits, including filling in forms, we can help you with issues you may be having with your benefits and help you to resolve these.  We are engaging and working with peer agencies to identify and support people at source and have now established outreach clinics in:
Pennywell foodbank – Mon 1-3pm
Grassmarket foodbank – Tues 2-4pm
Link-up Women’s Support Group –
Tues 9:30 – 12:30pm
In addition, we can offer appointments at The Stafford Centre for people who are registered members and non-registered members. This can be the individual experiencing the mental health difficulties and /or their Carers.
