Do you need Information and/or Advice?
Age UK Bedfordshire’s Information and Advice service provides free information and advice to residents of Bedfordshire who are 50 plus or are carers of older people. We can also help you complete benefit entitlement applications forms. These might include Blue Badge applications, Housing Benefit and disability benefits.
Information and advice is usually given over the telephone or through face to face meetings in our Bedford office.
Help with benefit applications can be done in your home if, through disability, you are unable to come into our Bedford office.
What can I expect from the Information and Advice Service?
Information and advice will be given on any issue relating to older people and their carers.
You will receive non judgemental impartial advice and independently sourced and up to date information.
Your personal information will not be shared with any other agency, without your prior permission.
Your personal details will not be stored on file without your consent.
You will be treated with respect and professionalism at all times.
Our Information and Advice service is funded by Age UK Bedfordshire through its revenue raising activities, with further financial support from Bedford Borough Council and Central Bedfordshire Council. Therefore, the service is provided free of charge.
Is there anything you don’t advise or provide information on?
We specialise in advice for people in the 50 plus age category. If you come to us with an issue we will either be able to provide the information directly or very occasionally signpost you to another specialist organisation. We can also provide you with a 15 minute appointment with a solicitor, without charge.
