Publications, Welfare Benefits Unit


The Welfare Benefits Unit provide accessible, concise information written for people who give information and advice as part of their work. The guide has proved an invaluable starting point for those working in a range of statutory and voluntary organisations including community, health, probation, housing and advice 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 Wallchart and Rates Card which provide a handy point of reference.

Regular updates are sent out quarterly via our Benefits e-Bulletin. The bulletin contains information on new benefits and tax credits, updates on changes to benefits and items of general interest.
