Benefits Advice Line 1

In a world that sometimes feels like a labyrinth of bureaucracy, finding the right support can be daunting. But fear not, because The People’s Orchestra has stepped into the ring with an enhanced Benefits Advice Line, a beacon of hope for those who are asking, “Where can I get help with my benefits?”

The People’s Orchestra: A Symphony of Support

Our mission at The People’s Orchestra has always been to make a positive impact in our community. We believe in the power of community and support, and our Benefits Advice Line embodies this ethos. In the past year, we have been instrumental in supporting hundreds of individuals facing financial difficulties, disabilities, and caring responsibilities, helping them access the benefits they rightfully deserve and equipping them with the tools to navigate the system confidently.

A Story of Transformation: Meet Jane

Let’s take a moment to share Jane’s story, one of the many lives transformed by our service. Jane, a single mother juggling work and caring responsibilities, was struggling to make ends meet. Overwhelmed by the complexities of the benefits system, she asked, “Where can I get help with my benefits?” When she found our Benefits Advice Line, her life took a turn for the better. With our guidance, Jane was able to claim back arrears payments and secure ongoing monthly benefits, providing much-needed financial relief for her family.

By The Numbers: Impact and Outreach

We’re not just making empty promises. Here are the figures to prove our commitment:

– We’ve reached 262 people through the Benefits Advice Line last year alone. Of those 40% had disabilities, and 23% were carers.

– We’ve claimed back approximately £27,000 in arrears payments and secured monthly benefits of around £9,000 (£108,000 annually).

– 60% of our users reported increased confidence and developed skills in navigating the benefits system.

– 95% of our users gained access to digital systems and support, enabling them to apply for the benefits they need.

Looking Ahead: Our Ambitious Goals

But we’re not stopping here. We’re expanding our reach, aiming to support 780 people, with 60% expected to report increased confidence and skills in navigating systems, and 65% gaining access to digital systems and support. We’re also actively engaging young people through partnerships with universities, colleges, and Job Centres.
