Vauxhall Community Law and Information Centre is funded to provide free advice to those people who need it most. This means that some of the help we provide is only available to people who meet certain criteria. If this applies to the kind of help you need, we will let you know.

We can provide advice on all benefits, particularly those for people who are sick, disabled, retired , unable to work, carers, lone parents, and anyone who is having difficulty getting any benefits they believe they may be entitled to.
We can also advise on appeals and provide representation at Social Security Appeal Tribunals.
