West Lancs ARK CIC:

For some people, applying for benefits can be a straight-forward process, and once sorted, that can put your worries to rest. For others, life can be more complicated: there may be various factors affecting your situation, such as homelessness, mental health issues, alcohol and drugs misuse or an ex-offender. Ex-forces personnel too, may benefit from specialised support.

Our benefits, employment law and debt advisers are specialists in their own field, and will help you secure the benefits that you are entitled to or the remedy that you are seeking, and for those other issues, we work closely with ARK.

  • Work Skills
  • Help with obtaining identification documents
  • Fork Lift Courses
  • SIA Courses
  • Drugs and Alcohol Awareness
  • Job Search
  • Housing Advice
  • Volunteering Opportunities
  • Funding for Women (dependent on qualifying)
