Heart & Hands

 

  • We continue presently to operate a telephone service for assistance with Form Completion (all kinds), Mandatory Reconsiderations and Tribunal Work. 

  • We aim to re introduce Face to Face appointments for some form completion as soon as practicable. At present, we are providing very limited face to face appointments only where this can't be done any other way.

  • Since the start of the pandemic, we have provided a great deal of practical and emotional support to those struggling to cope, sometimes alone, with the effects of the pandemic. We will continue to provide this support for as long as necessary along with our other services.
