Financial Crisis - Support & Prevention

Financial Crisis - Support & Prevention

We can offer you support, advice and access to other services when things get tough.  You may have unexpected expenditure due to a fire or flood, have had a change in your circumstances like a new baby, you may have lost your job or had your benefits stopped or suspended. 

We will help you find a way through, by giving advice and support and help you to access other services such as  a food bank or help with fuel.

We will also support you longer term to help you better deal with your finances and be more prepared in the future by managing your money better.

Our Personal Budgeting Support service can also help too.  This is available if you are in receipt of universal credit. 

We can;

  • make sure the amount of universal credit you get is correct
  • put together an income and expenditure budget
  • maximise your income through a benefits check
  • advise on how to open a bank account
  • support you to set up direct debits and ensure priority bills such as rent is paid on time
  • help you shop around for cheaper deals, such as fuel and insurance
