Publications, Welfare Benefits Unit


The Advisers Guide to Benefits is a concise annual guide which provides an overview of welfare benefits, including eligibility and calculation. It is written for people who give information and advice, with its clear format ideal for accuracy and quick reference. It is an invaluable resource, currently used across a wide range of statutory and voluntary organisations, including advice, community, health, housing and probation services.  The easy to use style of our publications can also provide a useful introduction for members of the public.

The Advisers Guide to Benefits is updated each year, providing a succinct point of reference for all advisers. The compact A5 format is useful to those who wish to carry it with them whilst visiting clients or attending outreach sessions. For essential updates please see resources.

We also produce a Benefits Rates Card which provides a handy point of reference.
