How We Can Support You

If you’re a family with under 18’s the best place for you to access help for your family is your local Family Centre (www.childrenscentres.dudley.gov.uk  www.mywalsall.org www.sandwell.gov.uk).

If you’re struggling to pay the rent or mortgage; please contact your local housing department (www.gov.uk).

If you have debt issues, try your local Citizen’s Advice Bureaux (www.citizensadvice.org) or Christians Against Poverty (https://capuk.org).

Are you getting all the benefits you’re entitled to? found this tool on Martin Lewis’s Money Saving Expert web site (www.moneysavingexpert.com).

If you are having problems claiming benefits, your first port of call could be the Job Centre (www.gov.uk) or after claiming your nearest Citizen’s Advice Bureaux (www.citizensadvice.org).

This is in no way meant to be a definitive list but you could always try the government’s information portal at www.gov.uk.

 

DON’T FORGET; You’ll need a voucher to access Black Country Foodbank:

You’ll only get a voucher if the project/community group/agency think it will help you. You need to keep working with them so they can help you get through your crisis. Please refer back to them if you need further help.

You must have a voucher to be able to receive a food parcel.

Not only will you be able to access help through these agencies but if they think it will help they may issue you with a voucher for the Food Bank.
