Touchpoint Benefits Advice Service

Supporting disabled people in Barnet to access the benefits they are entitled to.

We continue to provide advice and support via phone and email to help you apply for the benefits you are entitled to.

To access our service please complete a Benefits Advice Request Form as usual via the link below, and we will be in touch to discuss next steps as soon as possible.  

Please note demand for the service is currently very high, and we have a longer waiting time than usual. If you complete a referral we will therefore be in contact with you as soon as a space becomes available. In the mean time we appreciate your patience.

 

Who is this service for? 

Our Benefits Advice Service, part of Touchpoint, is for people who live or work in Barnet; feel themselves to be disabled by a physical impairment, mental health issues, learning disability or long term condition; and are finding it difficult to navigate the benefits system or applications process.

How do we help?

The many different types of benefits, criteria, points systems and payment rates can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate.

We offer practical advice and support to disabled people around all aspects of benefits. The aim of our service is to:

  • Provide you with information about the benefits system and application process
  • Help you to understand which benefits you may be able to claim
  • Work with you to apply for benefits you are entitled to
  • Complete benefit application forms with you

Which benefits do we help with?

We can help with the following benefits:

  • Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • Attendance Allowance (AA)
  • Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Universal Credit (UC)
  • Freedom Pass
  • Blue Badge
  • Taxicard
  • Dial-a-Ride

If you need help with another benefit, please contact us. We may still be able to help you or find someone who can.
