Diverse Abilities – Dorset’s Disability Charity

A reminder of this service for help with claiming benefits and completing a Lasting Power of Attorney



To enable children and adults with disabilities to achieve their full potential by providing a lifetime of sustainable support and educational services.


“The Diverse Abilities Advice Team offers help and support to people that are struggling with claiming disability benefits or with challenging a DWP decision. The team can help with completion of forms, sourcing of evidence, drafting and submission of appeals and representation at tribunals. We help with Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), Carers Allowance (CA), Child Disability Living Allowance (DLA), Blue Badge and Personal Independence Payments (PIP).

The Advice Team supports people with all types of disabilities and health conditions of all ages, including children, their families and carers. As well as benefit advice, the Advice Team provides a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) service to help families and individuals to decide whether an LPA is right for them.

The team is not-for-profit and does need to charge a small fee for the benefit services it provides as it has no government or council funding. However, you will find the team’s services for LPAs considerable cheaper than other professionals in the area.

If you use Facebook, why not take a look at our Diverse Abilities Advice Team Group, where we can members can post DWP updates, ask questions, and keep in touch.

To book a telephone appointment or for further information, email or call 0300 330 5514.

We are available on weekdays between 9am-5pm.”
