Financial Inclusion Project
West Somerset Advice is working with the Food Cupboard to fight the underlying causes of poverty and to understand who needs a food box.
We would be grateful if you would complete a form to let us know more about the household in need. We offer other help and assistance. See our pages on the Local Assistance Scheme, Wessex Water help with bills & our money management services. We work to maximise income and to help people manage on their income.
Social Welfare Reform – the Somerset Campaign and Research group monitors the impact of welfare benefit reform on households and we will use the information you give us to work with the DWP on the introduction of Universal Credit to lessen any negative impact on local households.
Where there is a threat of debt recovery, rent arrears and eviction please seek advice. We are working with agencies across West Somerset to help to sustain tenancies and provide support with financial capability
