  • having dependent children;
  • having a low household income; and
  • experiencing mental ill health.

If you think your organisation would be interested in being funded to help them deliver this approach, please register your interest here.

They will also be holding a series of events in May to discuss the new approach and have the opportunity to discuss how they can build partnerships to approach debt advice in a holistic way. All will cover the same agenda and are free of charge. Register and find out more details here.
