Age UK Camden has an Information and Advice team for older people 50+ and their friends, neighbours and carers who live in the borough of Camden.
We have a range of qualified advice workers, a range of dedicated and experienced volunteers.
We run a holistic advice service, providing information and advice on a wide range of issues. This means that when you come to see us we will ask you questions about how you are living, what help you need, and will look at all the help you need and not just focus on one issue.
We can help with
• Benefit checks
• Benefit Claims and appeals
• Debt advice, intervention and negotiation with creditors
• Housing issues include housing disrepair, housing move and applications.
We help people with access to social care and health services and assist clients when things are not going so well with these services.
We help people access social activities, community groups and organisation in their area and we help them to find accessible local transport, and apply for items such as Freedom passes and Taxi cards.
We have a small grants fund for essential items such as bedding, furniture and white goods
We can give advice in Somali, Sylheti and Bengali, with advisors who speak these languages.
