Are you getting what you are entitled to?

Lambeth runs two schemes to help ensure that residents on low incomes are claiming what they are entitled to. Every year billions of pounds worth of benefit and tax credits go unclaimed by people who could benefit from them. If you or someone you know is struggling financially then why not make use of these Lambeth services?

Every Pound Counts offers a free benefits check and advice to ensure you claim your full benefits entitlement to:

people aged 60 and above
people living with long term illness
disabled people
people with sensory impairments
children who are ill or disabled including children with special support needs because of developmental or behavioural conditions
or the carers of any of these people living in Lambeth.
If you fall into one of these groups, you could be entitled to more money than you are claiming.

To date, over £3 million has been claimed since Every Pound Counts started in April 2007.

With Lambeth's Every Pound Counts campaign, we aim to help make sure you claim all the benefit support you are entitled to receive. So, don't delay. If you live in Lambeth, contact us and make sure you claim what is rightfully yours.

Social, health or other care professionals can refer clients to the Every Pounds Counts service. Self-referral is also fine.
