It is with great regret that we have had to suspend our face to face services for Help to Claim. However, if you need our help, we are doing everything possible to maintain our support by other means in these difficult times.
We have therefore increased our resources for telephone and online services. As you can imagine our phone lines are very busy and it may prove difficult to connect without holding for an extended period.
If you wish to contact us online, please use the Online Enquiry button above.
If you are calling on our Adviceline you will be given the option to leave a voicemail message which again will avoid the need to hold on the line. We will again contact you as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience and support.
