BENEFIT CLINIC SUCCESS


West Cumbria Carers are celebrating securing over £300,000 of benefits for local carers!


Approximately 120 carers in West Cumbria have been supported to claim over £300,000 of benefits by the Carers Benefit Support Worker, Lynne Christie-Quinn, in the last 12 months.


Lynne explains: “Navigating your way through the benefits system understanding entitlement and completing paperwork is complicated and time-consuming. A real headache for busy, stressed carers. This service has supported 120 carers to access benefits they often don’t even know they are entitled to.”


The additional costs involved with living with illness or disability can cause people to struggle financially. The money that you may be entitled to can make a huge difference to how you feel:


• no longer worrying about big winter heating bills dropping through the letterbox


• not having to count every penny when shopping for food


• not stressing about the cost of care or equipment


Lynne holds regular monthly clinic appointments providing benefit information and support. She can help you to complete

benefit forms for Carers Allowance, Attendance Allowance, Personal Independence Payments and Disability Living Allowance (U16s).


We work in partnership with local libraries, who provide the venue and a welcoming atmosphere in which to run the clinics. Clinics in and around Cockermouth held at:


• West Cumbria Carers Office, Cockermouth on the fourth Wednesday of the month between 10.00am and 1.00pm


• Workington Library on the first Tuesday of the month between 10.00am and 1.00pm


• Maryport Library on the third Thursday of the month between 10.00am and 1.00pm


If you are a carer and would like to know if you are entitled to any of the benefits listed above, call Lynne on 01900 821 976, she can then book you an appointment at your nearest clinic.


If you would like any further information, please contact:
