Autism Berkshire Benefits Service

Autism Berkshire's Benefits Service is expanding. In addition to help completing application forms and preparing for appeals, our Benefits Adviser Kevin Jackson is now available to represent people at benefit assessment hearings and appeal tribunals.

In addition to helping with benefit applications for individuals and families living with autism, Kevin is now able to assist people with a number of conditions related to autism, including severe dyslexia, dyspraxia, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). 

He can help with the following benefits:

Universal Credit; Employment & Support Allowance; Jobseeker's Allowance, Carer's Allowance, Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment, Housing Benefit and Council Tax

Kevin is available for one-to-one appointments at our office in Reading. There is a £10 refundable deposit for daytime appointments, which will be returned once someone attends an appointment.

Evening appointments are also available, but these are subject to a £40 non-refundable charge.

Representing people at benefit assessment hearings and appeal tribunals is subject to a £40 non-refundable charge.

Advice and representation for benefit applications related to severe dyslexia, dyspraxia, OCD and ADHD is subject to a £60 non-refundable charge.
