    Dear Carol,

    Thank you for your enquiry to Helplines. We are not Welfare Rights speciaists but signpost to the following organisations for this help. Age UK http://www.ageuk.org.uk/
    , some councils have a welfare rights department, CABs , and DIAL UK http://www.dialuk.info/

    Often if you are looking for money to adapt your home you may well need a report from a Occupational Therapist (OT) stating that you need the adaptation (OTs can be found in social services departments.)

    If you'd like some more information about self managing your arthritis, then email us your name and address (to [email protected]) and we'll post you a pack.

    I hope we can help further

    Guy
