ICANN provide advocacy support at Benefit Health Assessments for Personal Independence Payments, Employment Support Allowance and Universal Credit.(Disability related)
An advocate can meet with you before your assessment to help you prepare, explain the process, know what to expect and provide information.
We can attend the assessment centre with you, help you get your voice heard and support you to provide information to the assessor. This also includes support at home assessments.
ICANN also provide telephone support regarding assessments.
We are unable to help with form filling, mandatory reconsiderations or to make an appeal.
Financial Inclusion Project
One to one support for individuals who may require some extra support to maximise their benefits, deal with debt, increase budgeting skills, access more affordable borrowing solutions, or appropriate banking services.
We can also help with other finance issues such as applying for grants.
Please contact to discuss what help you require.
There should be more people out there like your volunteers for vulnerable people like me. Advocate was absolutely lovely, without her help I probably wouldn’t have even gone to the assessment.
