ABOUT FOR RUTLAND

For Rutland raises funds to pay for specialist advisers, based at Citizens Advice, who provide free, confidential, independent, non-medical advice to people of all ages who are living with long-term health conditions in Rutland and the surrounding area.

To date, our advisers have secured over £5.2m either through benefit gain, debt write off or grant funding.

1 in 4 people in the UK suffer from long term conditions, such as cancer, strokes, dementia, multiple sclerosis, heart disease and mental illness. This affects every part of our community and people of all ages.

The point of diagnosis is often just the beginning. Living with the practical problems associated with long-term conditions can be overwhelming at a time when people are at their most vulnerable.

All of the advice is free, confidential, impartial and independent with a unique one point of contact – you need only tell your story once.

Based at Citizens Advice Rutland, the trained advisers help local residents and their families, with practical problems that seem insurmountable to many people at the time, such as:

Maximising Income

Relationships

Managing debts  

Access to care services

Employment

Advice on transport to hospital appointments

Housing

Referral /signposting for other services
