With generous support from the Big Lottery, Henry Smith, 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
Helping people in crisis with this innovative, wraparound at home service, we have developed a service that ‘reaches out’ to people living in Stratford on Avon District and Warwick District who are suffering hardship and not getting the help they need to resolve the issues they face.

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.
