I hope DIAL continues - they are able to give information on many confusing aspects regarding benefits.
Keep up the good work helping people with complicated benefit forms.
The adviser I saw was brilliant, attentive, kind and thoughtful and couldn't have done more for me, thank you so much.
I have been through hell in the last two weeks and wish there were more organisations like yours – you have never let me down, I would like to say a huge big thank you for being there at my time of need.
