Funded by the Postcode Neighbourhood Trust
Postcode Neighbourhood Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery. The cost of living crisis is hitting people on low incomes hard, with increases in a threat of homelessness from private rented tenancies, financial hardship, rent arrears and debt. The £17,224 funding from the Postcode Neighbourhood Trust has part funded a Trainee Financial Re-engagement Worker (FRW) to work alongside our existing FRW. The Trainee will work to prevent or reduce the impact of poverty by offering holistic, 1-1 support for people in financial hardship. Support will include a financial health check, income maximisation via access to benefits, grants and hardship schemes, debt reduction support and practical support to address food, fuel and hygiene poverty.
