Benefits and Welfare Rights

We have a dedicated specialist worker, Chris Saxon, who provides welfare benefits advice and support to residents of Kirklees and Calderdale who are living with HIV and to their carers. This includes:

  • Advice on entitlement to welfare benefits and how to claim;
  • Support to complete welfare benefits applications;
  • Support at welfare benefits assessment appointments;
  • Support in appealing a welfare benefits decision; and
  • Representation at appeal hearings

Where people are experiencing problems with debt and are in need of debt advice, our welfare rights worker puts people in contact with specialist debt advisors.

If you have queries about welfare benefits or are experiencing difficulties with an existing benefit, you can contact Chris Saxon on our office number 01484 469691/01422 341764 or on his work mobile number 07958914167.
