Having access to a stable income, decent housing and manageable levels of debt are important for us all and can support us in maintaining good mental health. When problems occur in these areas of our lives it can be incredibly stressful and make managing our mental health difficult.
The Advice Team provides free and impartial advice on welfare benefits, housing and debt to people with mental health needs living in Manchester. This can include helping with forms, sorting out problems with benefits, helping to challenge and appeal decisions and sorting out your finances.
You can contact the Advice Team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or ringing 0161 769 5732 to make a referral. You can also come along to our twice-weekly drop ins if you have an urgent query or want to check out whether we can help.
Our Advice Team Drop-Ins are on:
VENUE: Zion Community Centre, 339 Stretford Road, Hulme, M15 4ZY.
Alternatively, you can make a referral for an appointment by calling 0161 769 5732 or emailing email@example.com.
Our young adults' service (YASP) also provide advice for individuals aged 15-18, with a weekly advice drop-in. Click here for details.
If you want to signpost someone to our drop in please contact us first, as some issues will require longer and/or multiple appointments. Issues such as ESA/DLA/PIP forms and multiple debts cannot be dealt with during the drop-in and will require an appointment with an advice worker.
