How we can help

We know it can be daunting, but talking about money can be the first step to getting support and dealing with any money worries you may have.  The Money Matters project can help you to take that first step, support you in getting the help you need and help prevent things from getting out of control.

The kind of things we can help with include:

  • Talking to small groups on subjects such as saving money, saving energy and about scams and how to avoid them
  • Budgeting and help with your spending
  • Understanding energy bills
  • Helping with charitable grant applications to clear energy debts
  • Signposting and making referrals to further specialist support

You can get help from us by:

  • Emailing
  • Calling 07521 503696
  • Connecting with us via Zoom
  • Dropping into one of our pop-up cafes
