Benefits and Money Advice

Icon Rent without text

We are currently working with the Community Help and Advice Initiative (CHAI) to provide a benefits and money advice service for our tenants.

We have an advisor who can:

  • Carry out an income maximisation check to ensure you are in receipt of your full benefit entitlement
  • Assist with making benefit claims and completion of application forms
  • Help you with any benefit related issues
  • Assist with appealing decisions and representation at tribunals
  • Advise on debt related matters
  • Negotiate with creditors on your behalf

How can I book an appointment?

The advisor can arrange an appointment to see you at the Almond office or at a home visit if this is more suitable. If you would like a referral, please contact the office on 01506 439291 and ask to speak to our Advice Worker.

Alternatively your Housing Officer can make a referral on your behalf. If you would prefer to contact the Advice Worker directly, you can email CHAI at almondhareferrals@chaiedinburgh.org.uk
