Money advice and information
When seeking advice on matters involving money it's important to be sure the advice can be trusted. The Money Advice Service is a good example of a service you can trust as it's free, independent and was set up by the government. But there are also other places you can get advice and information as well. The Disability and Social Care Advice Service (DASCAS), is a local charity that gives independent advice about benefits and care and support services. There are many national charities that offer good independent advice too.
