I'm really excited to announce that I have a brand new 'Benefits Doctor' column in Barking & Dagenham's 'The News' this week.

I'll be writing a column for The News each month, answering readers questions and highlighting interesting benefits news.

You can read the column and the rest of The News here:

Don't forget you can still read my regular monthly 'Benefits Doctor' column in national newspaper 'The Mature Times' as well!
