The Croydon Health and Wellbeing Space can offer information and advice around finances and help you find out what you are entitled to if you are on a low income. If you have a query about your benefits or you’re not sure where to get started, we can book you in with a benefits advisor from Mind Welfare Benefits team (Advice Quality Standard Marked) to discuss this. Alternatively, you could drop in to one of our DWP drop in sessions which occur twice a month. Please click here to see our monthly schedule.
