Advice and Welfare

Over the past 26 years we have supported thousands of Irish people across London and beyond, ranging in age from 55 to 99.

Together we have secured almost £40 million for our elder clients. This includes claiming state benefits that they are entitled to as well as resolving pension issues across both Ireland and England.

But our key advice work is in the area of housing. A weekly drop-in advice clinic in Kilburn managed by welfare and housing manager Margaret Geiger attracts 20-25 people every week.
