Crisis Referrals and Drop-Ins
Financial hardship can come at any point in life. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change can provide free advice on debt management and make applications for warm homes grants with you.
You may be finding it hard to manage changes to state benefits payments. We can help with Personal Independence Payments (PIP) and Universal Credit appeals. We also provide guidance on what to do if you are at risk of homelessness.
Elsewhere on our website, you can find information about employment support which includes personalised coaching and mentoring support to help you to overcome barriers to education, work or training.
These sessions are funded by the European Social Fund.
Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change provides food and support at times when this is needed. Our regular larder provides fresh vegetables and fruit and surplus food which is donated by our suppliers on a weekly basis.
Our community larder at The Elms, Redruth is open for drop-in food collections every Friday from 1-4pm.
A full range of items are available to people experiencing crisis. These are dried, tinned and packaged goods, toiletries, hygiene and baby items. Households are limited to using this service twice in any month and six times during any 12-month period.
If you are experiencing crisis, you also can access our free advisory service for support and practical help through our weekly drop-in sessions.
