Description of the service
The world of welfare benefits can be complicated and it’s often difficult to know what you are entitled to, or how to apply. Millions of pounds in benefits go unclaimed in the UK every year as a result of this, which many people could benefit greatly from. East Lothian Council funds and directly delivers welfare rights advice across the county with the aim of improving the income and living standards of local residents.
