Touchpoint Benefits Advice Service

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

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
