Resident Assistance Fund
Affected by the recent cost of living increases? S4B has a Resident Assistance fund available for any customers in financial difficulty.
With the fund you can apply for help with gas and electricity top-ups and help with food in an emergency.
S4B financial inclusion specialist, Yvette Brown, is here to help, so please get in touch and ask to make an appointment. T: 0300 555 0128, E: [email protected] or call into the S4B housing office.
There are some terms and conditions (t’s and c’s), but anyone can apply and a decision on each application will be assessed on its own individual merit.
To qualify you must:
- be an S4B resident
- with the help of the S4B financial inclusion specialist, Yvette, have exhausted all other avenues of help before making an application to the fund
- provide evidence of income and expenditure and complete a budget check with Yvette
We can help with buying many essential items such as (but not limited to):
- top-up for gas and electricity
- help to buy food
- essential household items
If you need help with food, we would follow our usual procedure of issuing Foodbank vouchers.
