  • Raise awareness amongst those on lower incomes, or those affected by the cost of living crisis, that they could be missing out on funding they are entitled to claim.
  • Encourage those individuals to call Advicelink Cymru for free, independent financial advice and support.

Thousands of people in Wales are entitled to more benefits.
