There are so many issues raised in our community that need specialist advice and guidance to overcome them.
For over 13 years we have provided debt and benefit advice for local people, reducing debt and increasing benefit entitlement to over £25 million pound. Many of the stresses,
anxieties and strains that families in poverty face is the lack of help and support to work through the many daily challenges they face, and we need to expand our advice and guidance to include a Law Clinic.
The main focus of the clinic will be family law and housing law, as these are the greatest needs at the current time. When you are in a state of hopelessness, and the only access to help costs you money, which you don’t have, you only spiral further down the desperation pathway. Our Advice, Guidance and Legal Clinics will address the specific issues and relieve the stress that builds in family life, reducing the additional problems caused.
As well as advice and guidance, we are working towards providing a community wide Money Management programme (Youth Bank, Credit Union, Financial Literacy and Financial Independence Programme), employability support, therapy and counselling services too.
The main benefit of this product is the impact on the neediest people in our community, receiving the vital support, that is otherwise unavailable.
This product is not so much about the amount of exposure you will receive, but the knowledge that your company is making the biggest difference to the people of Nechells.
Supporting this project provides limited opportunities – unless your business is one that can provide volunteers (advisers or admin support), but we will always include you in all our publicity, where appropriate.
