Our advisers there can help you to claim any benefits and entitlements you might be eligible for, complete claim forms, register as blind or partially sighted and assist and represent you at benefit appeals. They can also advise you on other services for blind and partially sighted people in your area, and on other organisations which can provide assistance.
