Specialist Services

 

  • Home Visiting - Do you need advice but can't get out to see someone? If you'd struggle to get to one of our centres because of a health condition or caring responsibility, we can come to you. Thanks to the National Lottery Community Fund, we can give advice on topics such as benefits, debt, housing, employment, relationships, consumer, immigration, health and care, all in the comfort of your own home. We cover all areas of Arun and Chichester.

If you'd struggle to come into our centres, call our adviceline on 0344 477 1171. Our advisers will take the details of your issue and try to help you over the phone. If you need to receive advice in person, the adviser will send your details to our Home Visiting Team. Your local Home Visitor will call you back to arrange a convenient appointment. If you'd like to find out more, you can call our administration line on 01243 866233 or by email to  admin@arunchichestercab.org.uk.

We work in partnership with the Chichester and Bognor Regis Branches of The MS Society to help people to better understand their entitlement to benefits and to receive assistance in making applications including appeals/tribunals. We offer a home visiting service, which is available to all people diagnosed with MS and living in Chichester, Littlehampton, Bognor Regis, Emsworth and surrounding districts. Contact us on 01243 866233 to book an appointment.

 

  • Social Prescribing Service - Our team of Community Referrers are now working in the REAL district (Rustington, East Preston, Angmering and Littlehampton). Sometimes referred to as community referral, social prescribing is a means of enabling GPs, nurses and other staff working in the health and care sectors to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services.

"Recognising that people’s health is determined primarily by a range of social, economic and environmental factors, social prescribing seeks to address people’s needs in a holistic way. It also aims to support individuals to take greater control of their own health" – King's Fund

  Our service is free, confidential, impartial and independent and for anyone aged 18+. Find out more here.

 

  • Law Clinic - We can offer up to 30 minutes of free legal advice through the Law Clinic. The areas of law covered are Civil Litigation, Employment, Family, Property and Wills and Probate. For further information access our leaflet here.
