Help carers to claim benefits
4:30pm Tuesday 29th January 2013 in News
SWINDON Carers’ Centre is looking for people to advise carers on their benefit entitlement.
Using a computer benefits calculator, volunteers will assist the carer, either in person or over the phone, to work out what they should be claiming. There is also the chance to help some carers fill out benefit forms.
Applicants may have previous experience of the benefits system or be keen to get involved in this area, but full training will be given.
Volunteers need to be available on a Friday morning for between two and four hours.
For more information on the role call Tim Saint on 01793 531133.
