Advice on Benefits is offered in the Drop-in Centre at the LJMC.
It is not necessary to make an appointment for this service. However, the Benefits Advisor is not in the centre every day so we recommend that you call the Telephone Helpline to check her availability before making a special trip.
If you are unable to visit the LJMC in person, please call the Telephone Helpline.
