Social Welfare Benefits Clinic

The Queen Mary Legal Advice Centre is committed to offering assistance to clients to access Social Welfare Benefits. We operate an appointment only clinic that assists with form filling for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Work Capability Questionnaires for Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) and Universal Credit (UC). We also assist in Mandatory Reconsideration appeals for PIP and ESA where initial applications have been rejected.
