Employment and money advice

We offer help and support on a range of matters, either on a one-to-one basis or through our weekly job clubs and drop-in sessions

One-to-one appointments can be held at our Brassey Road office or in your own home.

Support and advice available

If you are struggling with your money, finding it hard to budget or have debts, it’s important you don’t bury your head in the sand and get help as soon as possible. 

We can assist you with:

  • Maximising your income.
  • Job clubs and drop-in sessions.
  • Debt advice and negotiation with creditors to reduce payments - please see our useful leaflet below which will help you understand and priortise your most important debt.
  • Welfare benefit checks and help to apply for eligible benefits, including Universal Credit.
  • Making applications for grants/trust funds such as Severn Trent, British Gas or the Local Support and Prevention Fund.
  • Reducing your household bills.
  • Helping you get back into work; we offer assistance with CV writing, interview techniques job searching and applying for jobs online. We can also assist with finding apprenticeships, volunteering opportunities or signposting you to programmes such as The Prince's Trust.

Doing nothing will mean your circumstances get worse and you could end up losing your home. It is your responsibility to ensure your rent and service charges are paid on time and if you are unable to do this we will have to take action. Although evictions are rare, they do happen and if evicted, you may experience difficulty being re-housed in the future.
