Financial help

If you’re struggling financially or you’re worried about money we can help. 

Citizens Advice

We work with Citizens Advice who offer free advice about welfare benefits, debt, housing and employment. Find out more and book an appointment.


If you need financial help and have no other access to money we can offer you a one-off grant to pay for things like food, gas and electricity, replacing essential household appliances, or buying school uniforms. Find out more and apply.
