We and other local charities have created a free, useful leaflet about where to find help if you can't afford essentials
It can be hard knowing where to find help if you, or someone you’re supporting, is experiencing financial hardship. In our experience, no one wants to use a food bank. It’s a last resort when other support has failed, or when people don’t know where else to turn.
That’s why we and other local charities have produced this Worrying about Money leaflet for Wandsworth. You can download and print it for yourself or the people you support – and there’s also an online version if you prefer.
We hope it helps local people find the expert advice and support they need – so that ideally everyone can have enough income for essential costs like rent, fuel and food. It also has information about emergency support like Wandsworth Council’s discretionary support grants for rent, food and fuel, and essential white goods and furniture.
