Benefits

The provision of benefits to the residents of Swindon is a responsibility shared by a number of organisations.

The Council directs enquiries regarding welfare benefits to various organisations:

  • The Department for Work and Pensions
  • Swindon Citizens Advice 

 Swindon Citizens Advice  can help you with advice tailored towards your personal circumstances and aim to:

  • Promote the take-up of benefits and ensure people are aware of their rights and responsibilities with regard to welfare benefits
  • Provide assistance to claim benefits
  • Maximise the income of people in Swindon through welfare benefits
  • Provide debt and budgeting advice to people experiencing financial difficulties

The service from  Swindon Citizens Advice  is confidential, impartial and free. Contact them for advice from Monday - Friday, 10am - 12.30pm on: 0344 4994 114

To make sure you and your family are receiving all the benefits you are entitled to, you can access an online benefits calculator.
