Ability Action: Advocacy and Welfare Support (for Disabled People)

Ability Action (Southend) CIC has a proven record of offering advocacy and welfare support for disabled people in Southend and beyond.  If you are disabled or have a disabled family member who is concerned about DLA/PIP forms, ESA forms, appeals processes or tribunals, please get in touch with us as we should be able to help you.

Individuals who have used our services have told us: Even though I like to think I am organised, independent and competent, this tribunal was beyond me and having the support of AASCIC was the closest thing to encountering a saviour that I have experienced!

We encourage contact from any disabled person or their family members.  Please note that we operate on a donation basis, we ask that you give what you can for the support you receive from us; part or full funding options may also be available on request.
