Info and Support Service: welfare benefits referrals

December 06, 2018

Action for M.E. offers a free Information and Support Service for young people and adults with M.E., and their carers and family. Our friendly Information and Support team understand the challenges of living with M.E., and includes two specialist advisors providing welfare benefits and employment advice.

Unfortunately, due to recent, very high demand, we are unable to accept any new referrals to our specialist advisors for welfare benefits advice, until January.

Our general Information and Support Service, including our specialist employment advisor, is still available. You can contact the team by email or phone on 0117 927 9551 (Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm; there is the option to leave an answerphone message outside of these hours and your information will always be treated confidentially). The service will close for Christmas at 4pm on Friday 21 December 2018 and re-open at 10am on Monday 7 January 2019.

Our team can provide advice and information directly; refer you to one of our specialist advisors for employment advice if appropriate; and/or give you information about other organisations which may be able to help.
