Chesterfield Borough Council is committed to making sure that our residents are not missing out and are claiming the money they are entitled to. Billions of pounds of benefit go unclaimed each year because people find the benefits system too complicated and the forms too difficult to complete.
Claiming benefits will make you better off each week and may help you get grants that are available through The Home Improvement Agency. Find out how the benefits advisor can help you below.
