A new guide to welfare benefits has been added to Headway’s publications library.

Welfare booklet

With governmental cuts and reforms putting increasing pressure upon applicants, A guide to welfare benefits after brain injury aims to help people affected by brain injury cope with the ever-changing face of the welfare system.

The booklet covers key issues such as Personal Independence Payment (PIP), and how to access core benefits including Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), benefits while in hospital, and Universal Credit.

“We hope that this bespoke booklet will serve as a clear and accessible guide to help people navigate their way to securing the benefits they may urgently need”

said Tamsin Ahmad, Publications and Research Manager at Headway UK.

Get the booklet

The booklet is available to download free of charge, or you can buy a printed copy through the Headway UK online shop. People with a brain injury and their family can get free copies of Headway’s booklets through the Headway helpline.
