Free and confidential advice for residents of Ealing
The Ealing Advice Service (EAS) consortium offers free and confidential advice to residents of Ealing.
We can help with: telephone calls, understanding letters, written and online applications, online bidding for social housing, form filling, preparing for appeals and tribunals and speaking with professionals.
Our advice team can give in depth advice in our specialist areas of work: benefits, debt, housing and employment.
Changes to the EAS service during the coronavirus outbreak:
We can offer a limited number of in-person appointments at premises in Ealing.
If an appointment has been arranged, please arrive no more than 15 minutes beforehand. Attendees arriving 15 minutes late will not be seen.
All appointment attendees must wear a face covering and adhere to social distancing. EAS will not be able to offer a service to clients who refuse to follow government guidance.
We are no longer based at the former Age UK Ealing office at 135 Uxbridge Road and unfortunately we are not currently able to offer drop-in advice sessions or home visits and cannot see unannounced visitors without an appointment.
EAS can assist with the following advice enquiries:
Welfare benefits including Universal Credit, ESA, PIP, Attendance Allowance, Pension Credit, Housing Benefit and Tax Credits
Council Tax issues
Transport and Travel concessions including Blue Badge applications
Social Care advice
Advice and support for parents and carers of children and young people with disabilities and additional needs

Debt advice and money management

COVID-19 related advice - quarantine, testing, emergency provision
We have access to specialists who can assist with debt, housing, employment and benefits enquiries up to appeal level.
If we are unable to assist we may refer you to another organisation. Unfortunately we cannot accompany to assessments, represent in person at tribunals or provide advocacy services.
