Better Advice: Better Lives Project
Funded by Welsh Government, Citizens Advice Cardiff and Vale provide advice to individuals and families across the two counties.
The project is made up of 3 different strands:
Better Advice: Better Health
Advising individuals who have been referred by a healthcare professional or referred themselves after speaking to one. We can provide non-medical advice for issues that are having an impact on their health or well-being.
Disability Benefit Take-Up for Children
Providing specialist advice for families who have a child with a disability or additional needs. For example, they may want help making a new or renewal claim for child Disability Living Allowance. We can advise on how to make a claim, help fill in benefit forms and support individuals to challenge decisions that they think are wrong.
Council Tax and Housing Benefit Take-Up
Providing specialist advice around help with the rent and/ or Council Tax bill.
Universal Credit and Benefits advice
Advisors should be able to help you with these applications or signpost you to sources of help and assistance.
For specialist debt advice, please refer service users to our drop-in service as this project is unable to provide debt advice at this level.
