What’s the Clear Benefits scheme?

Clear Benefits is a free, impartial and confidential advice service run by us, the Torbay Advice Network. It provides support for Torbay residents covering benefits and general welfare advice.

We started the ‘Clear Benefits Torbay’ project in 2016 by ensuring that a part-time welfare worker and our manager were available to the public.

Over the last few years, they have supported over 400 people and helped clients secure and save over £500,000 and vastly improve their personal wellbeing.

If you want to learn more about the Clear Benefits scheme or use it to find out which benefits you’re entitled to, please get in touch with our team today.

Areas we can help with:

  • Identifying which benefits you might be entitled to
  • Explaining how to claim and providing help with forms
  • Describing what to do if your circumstances change
  • Advising on how to appeal against a decision on your claim

We also offer signposting for financial support, welfare advice and more.
