May at The Welcome Centre
The cost of living is impacting us all. But as food and energy prices continue to rise, those who were already struggling to afford basic essentials such as food, toiletries and clothes are being pushed into impossible choices. Last month, was sadly another record month for us. The total packs we provided of 1,899 was the most we've ever provided in our history - that's over 25 years of providing support.
What did our Advice, Guidance and Support service provide in May 2022?
We've seen a steady increase in the number of people now attending our Money Management drop-in sessions. These weekly drop-ins support clients with their debts, benefits issues and budgeting, finding ways to help people back to some form of financial stability.
