Welfare Benefits Advice Line Closed for March
The Mind in Croydon Welfare benefits Advice Line will be closed for general advice enquiries throughout March, due to oversubscribed appeal representation requests on our waiting lists and shortage of staff resources.
We ask that people continue to leave their details on the advice line voicemail for form filling or appeal assistance enquiries and we will return calls on these issues.
For general benefits advice please contact either Citizens Advice Bureau Advice Line on 020 8684 2236 or the Councils Welfare Rights Advice Hotline on 0800 731 5920.
We hope to reopen the advice line in April but will continue to keep you informed on this.
