With generous support from the Big Lottery, local councils and charitable trusts and foundations, we have developed a number of special projects that are helping us to improve our services and ensure that everyone who needs our help can get access to it.
Reach Out and Help
Recently funded by Orbit Heart of England, Stratford on Avon District Council and Warwickshire County Council and now the Big Lottery Fund, we have developed a service that ‘reaches out’ to people living in Stratford on Avon District who are suffering hardship and not getting the help they need to resolve the issues they face.

Established on 1 April 2013, we helped to set up a new organisation called Healthwatch Warwickshire, with financial support from Warwickshire County Council. Healthwatch aims to be the new consumer champion for health and social care services in the county and gives local people access to the information and advice they need to make informed choices about the services on offer.

Getting the best energy deal
We run sessions that aim to help people cut the cost of their energy bills and tackle any energy related debts. This includes help to switch tariff, payment method or supplier. Typical savings made by people who had not considered supplier or tariff for some time have been between £200 and £500 a year.
