Disability advice in Brighton and Hove

Our Advice Centre can help with disability advice, welfare benefits and a range of other issues

Possability People’s Advice Centre supports adults who live in the Brighton and Hove area who are disabled, or have a health condition, or are older people, carers, or other professionals with a disabled client.

With a wealth of knowledge about the allowances and benefits you might be entitled to, we can help you fill in the necessary paper work so the process is less daunting and stressful. We can help you challenge benefit decisions you disagree with and in some cases, support you through appeals.

If you need information and advice about equipment or assistive technology, we will know what to talk to you about. If you want to know about money, Homemove applications or how to deal with debt, holidays or other local groups and services in the community, we can advise you.

We can help with enquiries about;

  • Disability benefits (ESA, UC, PIP, AA, Carers Allowance, WTC)
  • Disability benefits appeals
  • Some pension credit enquiries
  • Some Council Tax enquiries
  • Fuel debt or changing fuel providers
  • Utilities debt
  • Information on equipment or assistive technology
  • Accessible holidays
  • Food bank referrals

All the work we do is independent and in confidence. We have The Advice Quality Standard and work in partnership with other agencies to provide specialist knowledge when needed.
