Survivors welfare advice project

The Survivors Welfare Advice Project (SWAP) is a free nationwide service run by CPAG.

We advise professionals working with domestic abuse survivors on issues relating to their benefit claims and entitlement.

The project will also gather evidence of systematic problems with the welfare system faced by survivors to help inform our policy and legal work.

We have a helpline and email service available.

SWAP can advise on:

  • Issues relating to joint claims
  • ‘Right to reside’ and eligibility
  • Managing benefits after fleeing domestic abuse
  • Any other welfare rights matters
