Following a Carers Assessment or Review, we can provide benefit entitlement advice and support, assistance to apply for the correct benefits and support to challenge incorrect benefit decisions to all unpaid carers registered with Trafford Carers Centre.

In 2021, we assisted our carers in saving an incredible £714,531.48p

Our Benefit Adviser has a vast range of knowledge and experience, having previously been employed by the DWP. The benefit advice we assist with includes:

  • Carers Allowance and Carers Credit
  • Disabled Living Allowance
  • Personal Independence Payment
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Employment Support Allowance
  • Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Universal Credit
  • State Pension
  • Pension Credit
  • Bereavement Support Payment

If you would like to speak to our Benefits Advisor, you will be referred by one of our caseworkers, by calling 0161 848 2400 option 1 or email helpline@traffordcarerscentre.org.uk . They will forward your details onto our Benefit Advisor to identify your benefit entitlement and will provide details on how you can claim.

Please note that we cannot complete the forms on your behalf. If you need support with this we can refer you to an appropriate organisation.

Waiting times to be contacted by our Benefits Advisor may vary.

To access support from our Welfare & Benefit Advisor you must first be registered with Trafford Carers Centre and have had a recent assessment or review of your support needs.
