Services

Aberdeen Illness and Disability Advice Service provides free, confidential, independent and impartial non-medical advice to people affected by illness, disability or a long term condition who live in the NHS Grampian area.

The Aberdeen Illness and Disability Advice Service aims to prevent or relieve poverty by providing clients with advice and help to access appropriate DWP benefits, grants and any other possible income sources. This can include representation at DWP appeals.

It will also provide help or advice on Debt, Housing and Employment issues and provide general advice on any other issue brought up and, where appropriate, sign-post clients to other organisations who may be able to help.

Help and advice is available at the most suitable location for the client, whether in hospital, at home, or any other appropriate setting or by telephone and e-mail if the client lives outwith the City of Aberdeen.

The service is supported by Cash in Your Pocket Partnership and the Fairer Aberdeen Fund.
