Royal Borough of Greenwich Information
The Welfare Rights Service is running a campaign with the Families Information Service aimed at families with children aged up to 16 with additional needs.
The campaign is offering benefit checks which are carried out over the telephone, plus information about childcare and other activities. Greenwich Council do not want families to miss out on extra benefits they may be entitled to.
Parents can ring the Welfare Rights Helpline on 020 8921 6375 for help and advice.
