A new guide to nystagmus and benefits

From our monthly virtual support networks to our free benefits advice, the Nystagmus Network is always here for you.

As we emerge from the pandemic, we’re all feeling the financial pressure of increasing fuel prices, the rise in the cost of living and, for some, job insecurity. So, we’ve put together a new guide to benefits.

Alongside our bespoke booklet on DLA, PIP and Nystagmus by volunteer Mike Hughes, a professional benefits adviser and member of the Greater Manchester Welfare Rights Advisers Group (GMWRAG), we now offer a Benefits Guide, providing information on a wider range of means-tested and non-means-tested benefits which may be available to someone living with nystagmus. The new guide was compiled by our staff team, under Mike’s professional guidance.

#YouMadeItHappen – Mike

This year on #YouMadeItHappen Day we’re celebrating the nystagmus heroes of 2019 who’ve really helped make a difference for the nystagmus community.

Mike is a professional benefits expert who also happens to have nystagmus. He is always ready with advice and guidance which he offers freely to Nystagmus Network members. He also writes our guide to nystagmus and benefits.

A regular at our annual Open Day, Mike lends his time, support and expertise to Nystagmus Network members every day of the year.

Thank you, Mike
