Derby Citizens Advice and Law Centre

Welfare benefits can be a very confusing area and many people are unaware of what benefits they are entitled to as a result of this. This means there are billions of pounds worth of unclaimed benefits in the UK every year. At the Citizens Advice & Law Centre we know how important benefits are and we work hard to help those clients who come to see us with issues regarding welfare benefits. We can help to answer any questions you may have regarding what welfare benefits you are entitled to. We are also able to check if you are receiving all the benefits to which you are entitled, such as those relating to age or income level.
