Advice for disabled people

Possability People offers a wide range of support and advice to disabled people, their families, friends, and carers. The team are experts, and most of them have a lived experience of being disabled or living with a long term health condition. We support people who live in Brighton, Hove and East Sussex.

Opening Times: Tue, Wed and Thu.

Our Advice Centre opening days have now changed to three days a week. We’re busy at the moment so please leave a message with your contact details and we’ll get back to you ASAP. Alternatively email:

We can help with enquiries such as:

  • Disability benefits: Personal Independence Payment (PIP), ESA (Employment Support Allowance), Universal Credit  (UC), Work Capability Assessments (WCA), Attendance Allowance (AA), Carers Allowance
  • Preparing for a welfare benefit medical assessment
  • Appealing your disability benefit decision
  • Some pension credit enquiries
  • Disabled Bus Pass applications
  • Blue Badge applications
  • Food bank referrals
  • Some Council Tax enquiries
  • Provide information on equipment, assistive technology, transport, accessible holidays, local support groups and services

We can support you to fill in the necessary paperwork to make disability benefit applications and processes less daunting. Need for our services is great and we therefore cannot always offer an appointment.

We can help you challenge benefit decisions you disagree with and in some cases, support you through the appeals process.

We also offer a specialist MS advice service, for anyone who is affected by MS in the Sussex Coastal Area. You can find out more about this service by calling us on 01273 894040.

If you want to know about money, or how to deal with debt, have a housing or legal issues then we can signpost you to the most appropriate service.

We signpost housing enquiries to Brighton and Hove City Council’s Housing Options Service or Homemove. If you have a housing emergency, contact Shelter  or Brighton Housing Trust.

All the work we do is independent and in confidence. We have The Advice Quality Standard and work in partnership with other agencies to provide specialist knowledge when needed.
