How can we help?

We provide specialist advice, casework and representation in all the above situations. From NHS primary care and GP services to care and support from the local authority; from disability rights to assistance for carers with care and support.

If you, or people you care for, have difficulty accessing these services, we can advise you on how to take the first steps to obtain the help you need. This may be to help find your way around the health and social care system, or question a decision you think is wrong.

As we also act for people on welfare benefits, housing, debt and mental health issues, we can help to disentangle complicated problems that often involve many of these areas, and help you clarify your rights and how to protect them
Call us directly on  020 8767 2777 to discuss your questions and we will advise you if and how we can help.
