Guide to UK Benefits
There is also a really handy UK Benefits Guide, updated for 2017, which you can see here. It lists the most significant benefits you could be entitled to. If you meet the detailed criteria, you should certainly state your claim and receive the support you deserve.
If you are unsure of any details or have a question, your local Citizens Advice would be able to help you.
