Different welfare rights organisations offer different services. Some help with the following things:
- Filling out a form
- Helping you with the appeal process
- Representation at tribunals
- Explaining what other benefits you may be able to claim
- Giving general information about benefits
Legal Aid is not available for help with benefits claims unless you need to appeal to an Upper Tribunal. You can appeal to the Upper Tribunal if you think that a legal mistake has been made. For example, if you think that the process has not been followed correctly.
