We aim to provide assistance to people who are experiencing personal financial difficulties due to a change of circumstances such as sudden unemployment, sickness, credit over-commitment, mortgage-stress and family breakdown.

Assistance can be provided for the purchase of groceries and essential household items, fuel vouchers, part payments for vehicle registration and energy bills.
