There are lots of different ways to get involved.
We know that not everyone has the time to volunteer with us.
Our most pressing need right now is funding.
This has become all the more urgent due to the decline in donations across the charity sector since the start of 2021.
Our charity is funded by the public, by people just like you.
Donations help us with the core part of our work, with solving immediate crisis and keeping it away.

There are many ways you can support us as a volunteer, for example: providing admin support in the office, acting as an interpreter for non-English-speaking clients, or offering graphic design or filming skills to produce social media posts.
If you would like to volunteer with us, please fill out your information on the Contact Us page and we will be in touch within 5 working days with more information on how you can get involved…
Your support in numbers
A gift of £50 would help cover the cost of a session with a member of the Advice & Support service team, as they help resolve the immediate crisis and work with people to put longer term solutions in place.
Each week we require over 25 volunteer hours to help support in a variety of ways, such as interpreting for non-English-speaking clients, crafting graphics for our social media updates, or providing office admin support.
Without volunteer support, we would not be able to meet the growing needs of the community. This is especially needed now with the soaring costs of living.
Out of every £1 donated
For every pound you donate, 75p goes straight towards running our front-line support service.
“I like meeting claimants and getting stuck into their issues. It’s the bit of the job where you feel it’s immediately worthwhile.”
