The benefits system can often seem daunting and many people fail to claim for the support that they are entiltled to, don’t miss out on this opportunity to speak to experts about the help available.

Residents living in Wealden are invited to a benefits drop-in session in Heathfield on Tuesday 24 January.

The event is being held in the Parish Meeting Room at Heathfield and Waldron Parish Council, 73 High Street, Heathfield TN218HU. Residents do not need an appointment to attend the session, which is from 9:30am – 3pm.

Members of the Benefits Service will be in attendance to answer any questions and advise residents on any financial support that they may be entitled to including Council Tax Reduction, state benefits and other assistance.

Councillor Neil Waller, Wealden’s portfolio holder for Benefits, said, “After hosting a number of these sessions across the district last year, we’re delighted to bring them into the new year.

“These sessions are vital in ensuring that our residents are claiming all that they are entitled to, and our Benefits Service is happy to be of assistance and support them however they can.”
