Hardship Grants

If you are in severe financial hardship and without an income we may be able to support you to make an application to a hardship fund. Through these funds you may be eligible to receive a one-off grant towards daily essentials such as food, toiletries, fuel supply, clothing or household appliances.

Probation and Prison Services

Working with Staffordshire and West Midlands CRC we provide tailored assistance with debt, benefits and financial literacy. Through group and individual support for offenders, those on licence and those on probation, this unique service supports the reintegration of offenders into society, so that they achieve financial stability. We also offer training to staff who support offenders enabling them to provide quality advice around financial matters and resettlement.
