The team at Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin are here to help. During this challenging time their highly trained benefits advisors are continuing to offer information and advice on all aspects of welfare benefits for those of state pension age.

The charity can maximise your income by checking your benefit entitlement and assist with applications.

Heather Osborne, Chief Executive of Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin, said: ‘The number of enquiries to our benefits team have dropped massively during this pandemic and we are really concerned that older people are not accessing the benefits they are entitled to. We want to reassure older people we are here to help, we are able to do benefits consultations over the telephone. Even if you have been turned down for benefits in the past, it is always worth applying again if your circumstances have changed and our team can help you with that process.’
