Welfare Rights

The welfare office was opened to assist the public with queries regarding social welfare payments and entitlements.
We provide a comprehensive confidential non judgmental and free service.

We provide information and advocacy services to:

  • Individual unemployed people
  • People in receipt of Social Welfare payments
  • Individuals, organisations and groups working with people facing social exclusion

As part of our service we provide:

  • Information supports by telephone and e-mail
  • Direct advocacy services for individuals when dealing with the Department of Social Protection
  • Assistance in preparing Social Welfare Appeals
  • Referrals to other organisations and groups
  • Assistance in filling out official forms

Our service is:

  • Free - there is no charge or cost involved in using our Information and Advocacy Services
  • Confidential – we treat your personal information in the strictest confidence and will not disclose any personal information to any individual or organisation without your express permission and approval
  • Impartial – we treat all people and groups equally and equitably

The resource centre is a non sectarian, non racist, non party political organisation which promotes equality of opportunity within society.
