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 disability advice team are a highly experienced group of experts.

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, housing or how to deal with debt, holidays or other local groups and services in the community, we can advise you.

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.

Sometimes a telephone call is all you need to solve a problem, so phone us first. If we think you need more time, we will make an appointment to see you.

Opening times

Our advisors are available by telephone, from 10am – 4pm, on Monday – Friday.

If you live in Brighton and Hove, you can also come to our drop in sessions, which we hold on Mondays from 10am – 3pm and on Fridays from  10am – 3pm. The drop in service can be very busy, so you might need to wait to be seen.  We would recommend you telephone us if you can.

The rest of the week we can advise you by phone, and will make an appointment with you if we think it would be helpful for you.

Contact us

The easiest way to contact us is by telephone. Call our advisors on 01273 894050. They are available from 10.00am – 4.00pm.
