We’ve launched our very own online help sessions, so that everyone can get the information that they need around social care, from the comfort of their own home.
Our initial sessions, around the subjects of filling in a Personal Independence Payment Form (PIP) and understanding the Social Care Assessment Process, have proved hugely successful.
Led by My Life CEO Caroline Tomlinson, with My Life’s Advocates Gill Lachman and Gail Ambrose, participants have been able to benefit from a wealth of experience, with Caroline and Gill’s many years’ experience of the social and healthcare systems and Gail’s knowledge of Benefits through her work at the Citizen’s Advice Bureau.
“We were becoming increasingly aware that the pandemic was exacerbating the issue of ‘where do I go for help and advice?’ for so many. As with the rest of My Life, our Advocates have continued to support people throughout this difficult time, even when it has not been possible to meet face to face and we wanted to extend that help to the many people out there who we know are struggling in so many ways. They really are not alone.”
More sessions are planned for the new year, keep up to date by following our Facebook page.
