Home visiting service for help with benefits claims

If you are not able to leave your home either because of disabilities or caring responsibilities and need support with welfare benefits, you can request a home visit. This service is provided by Herefordshire Council together with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) Visiting Team.

We can help by:

  • Providing you with information about the benefits you may be entitled to
  • Helping you to claim, and verifying supporting documents for you
  • Telling you about other services that may be able to help you

You can find out more about what to expect from a visit by the DWP Visiting Team.
