This service is provided by Disability Information Services Huntingdonshire (DISH).
DISH is a small, but long-standing, disability charity that has been in operation since 1991 and has a long history of successfully assisting people with disabilities and older people with free benefits advice, guidance, and support. In addition to telephone support, DISH is the only organisation locally who will make home visits to people, which is often the only way those most at need can access help to get benefits.
Many of DISH’s staff, volunteers and trustees have a disability themselves or care for someone with a disability and so understand how difficult it can be to negotiate the benefits system.
