Reading Community Welfare Rights Unit

Reading Welfare Rights advocates for Reading’s most vulnerable citizens, many of whom experience a debilitating mixture of physical and mental health conditions. We support individuals who are entitled to state aid, but who, due to the complex nature of the benefits system, cannot access the benefits they are due without our intervention. Our advocacy services go well beyond simply providing ‘advice’. At every stage of the Benefits process, we act as the client’s representative, including often being their legal appointee, speaking on their behalf to government agencies. We frequently represent our clients at Tribunals, arguing cases before a judge. https://readingspecialist.co.uk/
