Case Study

A Laughton woman was recently helped to claim a number of benefits and tax credits for herself and her children… these totalled over £300 per week. Our intervention followed the breakdown of her marriage, which had been very traumatic to say the least. Before her referral to KPIAC she had little knowledge of the UK’s benefits regime, and no experience of any claims processes.

Many clients call us, or visit us, in order to discuss implications for them as a result of the UK Government’s much publicised Welfare Reforms. These reforms are complex to say the least and much publicity has been extremely adverse – some of it is factually incorrect!
