Summary

Become a Benefit Buddy to use your lived/learnt experience of claiming health related benefits to help others in their applications. Full training provided.

Detailed description

Benefit Buddies is an exciting new project to North and West Gloucestershire Citizens Advice. Based on the Forest of Dean, you would support clients with their applications for health-related benefits (PIP, DLA, AA), and accompany clients to health assessments in a support role if required. We believe that people with lived experience of claiming are best placed to support those currently making applications. If you would like to use your lived experience to help others gain the financial support they need then please apply using the application form provided!


Please reach out if you would like more information.
