Information and advice service in Waltham Forest

What does it do?

How we can help

Papworth Trust provides free independent advice, information and practical support on housing, disability issues, care, and finances. We carry out free home visits for older and disabled people and their families and carers.

We can advise you on:

  • Housing services so you can stay living independently at home, including repairs and adaptations.
  • Grants and loans for home adaptations and improvements. We can help you to apply for Local Authority and other grants and loans such as Disabled Facility Grants, Decent Home Grants, Home Repair Grants, Home Repair Loans and Energy Efficiency funding if you are eligible.
  • Finances including applying for allowances, charitable funding and equity release.
  • Claiming benefits. We can help you get what you are entitled to, such as Attendance Allowance, Personal Independence Payment (PIP), pension credit or council tax benefit.
  • Care and support in your own home, in specialist housing or getting out and about.
  • Home safety assessments and information about moving to somewhere more suitable.
