A partnership agreement has been signed between the MS Society Peterborough and District branch and Peterborough Disability Information and Advice Line (DIAL).
Designed to help anybody in the MS Peterborough branch area affected by MS including partners, carers and families, it covers the Wisbech, March and surroundings areas.
This free, confidential service is needed because of the significant changes to benefits for disabled people that central government are implementing.
It will help people to establish full benefits entitlement, prepare and present claims and provide an advocacy service at tribunals.
The service is funded for two years initially and may be extended beyond. The service is open to anyone with MS in the Peterborough and District branch area.
Membership of the MS society is not required. Contact the MS Society on 01733-332711 or DIAL on
