Action on Asbestos - Compensation and Welfare Rights

Delivered by Action on Asbestos
This organisation is a No Wrong Door partner
  • Benefits advice

Our Welfare Rights Officers are here to answer any questions you may have and address any concerns. We are able to provide you with practical and emotional support. We can also advise you what benefits you are entitled to and whether you are entitled to compensation from the government. We provide specialist guidance on your right to pursue a civil/personal injury claim.

Your dedicated Welfare Rights Officer will discuss your options including benefits you may be entitled to at the time of diagnosis (whether you are in employment or not, you can still claim certain benefits.) We will also be able to advise you what benefits you may be entitled to if and when your circumstances change e.g. if you decide to give up work. The Welfare Rights Officer will assist you throughout your claim, including completing application forms and liaising with medical professionals and the DWP to make sure your claim is dealt with quickly and properly.
