Making ends meet

There's no shame in talking about money problems. The constant pressure of making ends meet is affecting more and more people. But we've got your back.

We need to be there for each other

With everything that’s going on in the world, the last thing you need to worry about is making ends meet.  A lot more of us are going to face redundancy and financial hardships because of the pandemic. We’re all under constant pressure and that’s why we need to be there for each other.

Lower income pressures

A lot of people have been furloughed, a lot are facing redundancy and a lot have been unable to work because of illness or caring responsibilities. Whatever the reason, if you're finding that you're unable to make ends meet we can help. 

Mental health and wellbeing

It's not an easy time for anyone, and now more than ever we need to prioritise our mental health and wellbeing. Between the constant pressure you're under with the day-to-day life and worrying about the pandemic, you might be feeling stressed or anxious, which in turn make you unwell.  But with the right tools, you can find a way of coping - that's where we come in. 

Finding solutions - together

We know that nothing happens in isolation and that there isn't a standard 'fix all' solution. That's why it's important to talk to us. We'll talk about the ways your life has been impacted by the pandemic and together we'll find the right solutions to put you back on your feet. 

Whenever you're ready, we're here to help. Get in touch with us.

Ways we can help you if you're struggling to make ends meet

Work support

Work isn't a sure thing anymore. Maybe you've been furloughed. Maybe you're facing redundancy. Or maybe you've been rethinking your career during lockdown. With our partners, we've put together career coaching programmes to help you work out your next steps and feel more in control of the changes in your life. The programmes are tailored to you and will include practical advice and ways to improve your resilience.

Emotional support

We often put our feelings on the backburner when we’re in a crisis. But our mental health is just as important as anything else. The fact is, we can’t function at our best when we have poor mental health. Having a coping strategy is more important than ever. So, if you’re feeling anxious, stressed or depressed there’s ways we can help.
