If the crime you’ve experienced has affected your financial situation, it’s important to get specialist advice. We understand that you may be feeling overwhelmed after experiencing a crime and the welfare benefit system can be difficult to understand. We can introduce you to Shelter to make sure you get the information and advice you need. Contact us when you’re ready.

If you feel able to use online information and advice, the Citizens Advice Website has lots of information on all types of benefits. You can also use their online benefits calculator to find out which benefits you can claim, and how much you will be paid.

If the crime you’ve experienced has caused you to be in debt and you’re struggling to cope, you’re not alone. We can support you emotionally and help you to move forward.
