Welfare Rights and Debt Advice Service

Get free confidential and independent advice on your benefits or debt problems.

We can help you work out what benefits and tax credits you are entitled to, assist with claim forms, and argue your case at an appeal if you disagree with a decision. If you have debt problems we can help you draw up financial statements, negotiate with your creditors and represent you in court. Get more detail about the different ways you can contact us for welfare rights or debt advice.

We can also come along to your community groups or team meetings to talk about our service, or update you on recent benefit changes, such as Universal Credit.

Our core data protection obligations and commitments are set out in the council’s primary privacy notice. This notice provides additional privacy information for Salford residents accessing Welfare Rights and Debt Advice Services.
