About: Further to our work on rightsnet and our other websites, and in response to feedback from advisers, we've been working on developing a series of web tools, all designed to support citizens' access to justice in relation to social welfare law issues.
Last year we launched the first of our new web tools - in relation to social care and council tax - and via advicelocal are providing borough-by-borough support for people across London. In addition, we've launched a universal credit web tool to help people check whether they can claim the new benefit in their postcode area, and new adviser guides to personal independence payment and the work capability assessment. You can find more information and links to each of the tools below.

socialcareinfo.net and counciltaxhelp.net are designed to help people find details of the support available to them locally; national information about their rights and entitlements; and details of independent advice organisations in their area who can help them get the help that they need.
