Healthy Minds has been providing specialist welfare rights advice and support for people who experience emotional distress for over 6 years.  From advising on entitlement and supporting with initial claims, through to appeals and representation at tribunal, this is a service in high demand.  We have the opportunity to increase capacity in the service with an additional project worker role.  Funding is secured for 6 months and we continue to seek longer-term support for this valuable service.

The welfare rights worker will deliver welfare benefits advice and welfare reform information focusing on delivering all aspects of income maximisation, welfare benefits advice and casework to a wide range of clients who experience emotional distress.

They will work closely with the existing welfare rights worker, sharing expertise and jointly reviewing casework to ensure a consistent, high-quality service.
