Welfare Benefits

Our Welfare Benefits service gives advice and help on all Welfare Benefit claims. It also provides support and information with appeals for disability benefits.

  • Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • Disability Living Allowance
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Incapacity Benefit
  • Employment Support Alllowance
  • Income Support
  • Carers Allowance

We have three Welfare Benefits Officers who can help you with your claim or give advice. One of them is a Gujarati speaker.

Some benefits, such as Income Support, are “Means tested”, whilst benefits such as Disability Living Allowance and Attendance Allowance, are not.

Disability Living Allowance can be claimed by people under 65 years old at time of application and consists of two components – mobility & care.

Attendance Allowance can only be claimed by people aged 65 and over at time of application. It only consists of the care component.

If you think that you may be entitled to welfare benefits and reside in the London Borough of Harrow (to whom you pay your Council Tax) you can make an appointment to see one of HAD’s welfare benefit officers.

They can assess your entitlement to benefits, assist you in completing the application forms and represent you at Appeals. Benefit advice sessions are free and are held at our fully accessible office, by appointment only, on Mondays 2 - 4pm, Tuesdays 1.30pm - 4.30pm, Wednesdays 10am to 12am and Fridays 10am - 1pm.

If you want to know what you are entitled to or need help filling in forms we are here to help you. Please telephone for an appointment.
