We are here to help
We can provide general advice and information on a wide range of subjects. We do not give debt advice or Tax Advice but we can signpost you on to services who can help.
We do not give legal advice but can refer you on to a specialist for free initial advice who can help with Wills and Power of Attorney. The legal specialist may be able to do a home visit in Buckinghamshire.
We can give advice on a wide range of benefits. We can help fill in benefit forms such as Attendance Allowance, Personal Independence Payments and Work capability Assessments at one of our venues in Banbury.
We do not do home visits but we can arrange for a Home visit to fill in forms with the DWP Home Visiting Team. Alternatively if you can travel to our advice centres we are happy to help fill in the benefit forms for you. The advice centre does not stock the forms; they have to be requested by contacting the benefit office. (See Useful number page).
