Keeping you up-to-date

From Citizens Advice Rural Cambs

Recent successful outcomes include:

  • Through applications submitted by CARC to the Cambridgeshire Local Assistance Scheme (CLAS) several clients have received awards for items, including washing machines, cookers, fridge, freezers, beds and bedding.
  • Assistance from a CARC adviser with completion of an application form for a school place has had a successful outcome.
  • A client, who was in receipt of benefit income,  contacted CARC after finding it difficult to make ends meet .  An assessment of the clients benefits by our Specialist Benefit Adviser has resulted in them receiving an additional weekly benefit income of just over  £63 and they also received a backdated lump sum payment in excess of £10k.
  • Following a conversion from Disability Living Allowance to Personal Independence Payment a client was awarded Standard Rate mobility, with help from a CARC adviser this decision was overturned and the client now receives Enhanced Rate mobility.
  • A CARC adviser helped a client to lodge their appeal against the loss of their Employment and Support Allowance (ESA).  The appeal was successful and client’s ESA was re-instated.
