Benefits drop in day comes to Hellingly

Residents living in Wealden are invited to a benefits service drop-in session in Hellingly on 5 June 2023.


Taking place at Hellingly Community Hub, BN27 4EP, from 12pm-4pm, the drop-in day aims to support residents to ensure they are claiming for what they are entitled to.


Wealden council has hosted other sessions since last year in Hailsham, Uckfield, Heathfield, Pevensey Bay and Crowborough.


The council will have its tenancy support, housing allocations, Ukraine housing options

and Council Tax enforcement officers on hand to provide support.


For residents who do not have online access, but need assistance in claiming Household Support Fund, officers will be available to assist with the applications.


Rachel Millward, Wealden’s portfolio holder for Housing and Benefits, said “These drop in sessions have been running over a year long period and are vital to make sure that our residents are claiming what they are entitled to.


“The sessions aim to give support and assistance to residents who may need assistance with claims, or clarification on what they are entitled to claim.”


Residents do not need to pre-book an appointment. For more information on the benefits day, visit Benefits Service Day – Wealden District Council – Wealden District Council
