Dosh Financial Advocacy

Posted by on Mar 26, 2014

Do you support a loved one with their money? Do you sometimes wish you could get help with this yourself? Dosh can give you the support you need, whether it’s benefit changes or direct payments, bank accounts or tenancy agreements.

Take benefits: with the introduction of Personal Independence Payment (PIP), Universal Credit and the bedroom tax, benefits keep changing, making them difficult and time- consuming to understand and manage.

Dosh can help give you peace of mind that you are on the right track with the Dosh money check. This is a one-off check that your family member is receiving all the benefits they are entitled to. They can also check bill payments and budgeting to help you get the most out of the money.

If you want more on-going help with money, Dosh can become their appointee. This means Dosh are responsible for managing the benefits, reporting to the DWP and claiming all their entitlements for them, leaving you free to focus on other important things.

Whatever support you and your family member want, Dosh can help. Their local financial advocates can visit you and give you one-on-one, personalised support. You can read stories about how they have supported people and find out more about their services on their website: www.dosh.org or call on 0300 303 1288 to discuss what they can do for you.
