Copeland Age and Advice Service

We are helping over 55’s in Copeland to live independently through the provision of benefit checks and assistance with benefit claims.

We also provide a form filling service for Blue Badge forms, Lasting Power of Attorney applications as well as assisting with housing options including the completion of Choice Based lettings and sheltered housing applications

As qualified Trusted Assessors we can also assess for and provide low cost aids and adaptions to support independent living.

Copeland Age and Advice Service is a not for profit Social Enterprise providing information, advice and guidance to the over 55’s in relation to financial matters, housing issues and in enabling people to continue to live safely and independently.  

We support the ever-increasing ageing population of Copeland, this combined with the reduction in budgets locally and nationally has put an extra strain on Social care and NHS services. 

Our service provides early intervention to vulnerable clients who, if left unsupported would more likely need to rely on Social Care and NHS services in the future.  

We aim to reduce inequalities in Copeland by ensuring that everyone is able to support themselves and manage financially, understand and access their housing options and access relevant support to enable them to live independently.
