Welfare Rights

AGE Concern Eastbourne provides a specialist welfare benefits service for older people either at the Venton Centre or in the home for the housebound.

Our highly trained staff and volunteers help clients complete 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 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.
