Listen to how Gayle Weir (Epilepsy Connections Fieldworker) provided support to a married couple where the husband developed epilepsy late in life. Coming to terms with this proved extremely difficult for them both.
Do you need help to complete benefit claim forms?
Filling in benefit claim forms such as PIP and ESA is a big task that can cause anxiety for a lot of people. Each Monday in Glasgow, Laura Glassford, our Welfare Benefits Advisor, can provide help for people with epilepsy to fill in any of these forms. Likewise, in Forth Valley our Fieldworkers can also provide this same service, which is free of charge.
If you would like an appointment please just call the office and speak to one of our Fieldworkers who will arrange this for you. Appointment slots are available at 10am and 2pm. However due to high demand for our service please contact us well in advance of your benefit form deadline, so that we have enough time to complete your form.
