Debt Free Advice mobile bus

In partnership with Mayor of London and Newham Council we arranged the mobile centre to come to Skills Enterprise on 29.11.2022. This offered free, expert advice on debt, benefits, and other money
worries. With many people impacted by the rising cost of living, the bus served as an in-person advice centre.

Funded by
Trust for London

Welfare / Benefit guidance

We provide holistic support, providing impartial and confidential advice to people from all walks of life. With our experience of working with the London’s most poverty stricken BAME Community of Newham, we observed that the cause of poverty in any community is multi-dimensional. 

To tackle the Poverty at the grass root level, we felt an urgent need for a structure that is based on the Holistic Support Model. For example, when a user who is on Universal Credit needs employment support, then we also give advice on how his new job can affect his benefit.
