If you are making an initial claim for Universal Credit then you will be able to get help from the Citizens Advice Universal Credit Help to Claim Helpline on 0800 144 8444. This is a national service.

We can assist clients with completion of complex forms such as those for Employment Support Allowance and Personal Independence Payment.

Where clients are refused benefits, we can assist them to request mandatory reconsideration and then in making an appeal if required. This support is provided by our Advice Kirklees team in partnership with Kirklees Council.

For clients whose case has been refused at tribunal we provide a specialist service for appeals to the Upper Tribunal funded by Legal Aid.

We have worked in partnership with Kirklees Council to create the Better Off Kirklees website which will allow everyone in Kirklees to check their benefit entitlement and make applications. This is a quick and easy way for you to handle your own benefits enquiry.

We have a new service for people who making their first claim for Universal Support. See our Universal Credit – Help to Claim page for more details.
