“I feel comfortable talking to friendly staff at Irish Community Services and feel that they understand me"

We offer a culturally sensitive service to older Irish people in our community who are often reluctant to access the services of other larger organisations.  Our experienced staff provide tailored and individual support with form filling, claiming benefits, pensions and passport issues, transport and housing.

We can help with:

  • Benefit Checks

  • Completion of all forms and on-going support through the claims process

  • Disability Benefits

  • Housing issues/benefits

  • Carers Benefits

  • Exemptions and discounts

  • Blue Badge/dial a ride/Taxi Card

  • Referrals for care needs or equipment

  • Health, wellbeing and more
