Welfare Rights

AGE Concern Eastbourne provides a specialist welfare benefits visiting service, for older people who are unable to
come into the Venton Centre.

Our highly trained staff and volunteers visit clients in their own homes to help them complete the lengthy welfare
benefit forms such as Attendance Allowance and Carers Allowance.  The team can also advise
on potential entitlement to other benefits and allowances such as Pension Credit and Council Tax Benefit and can refer
clients on to other agencies for further assistance.

In the last year, the outreach team has raised over £600,000 of additional income for older people in Eastbourne and
surrounding areas.
