The Get WiS£ Service Has Now Closed

Announcing the Closure of the Get Wise Service

It is with regret that we announce that the GetWis£ service has now closed.

The service has been up and running for three and a half years and has helped thousands of local residents access benefits to help them live more independently.

However, Surrey County Council and Surrey Clinical Commissioning Groups health and social care commissioners have had to make the decision based on unprecedented financial challenges and competing priorities for local investment.

We are unable to take any further referrals

For information, advice or support on welfare benefits we suggest you contact your local Citizens Advice organisation, Job CentrePlus, Age UK or Age Concern or your local council if it relates to housing benefit or Universal Credit.  Details of these organisations can be found on
