Resident Assistance Fund

Affected by the recent changes to benefits including Universal Credit?

S4B has a Residents Assistance fund available for any of its customers in financial difficulty.

S4B financial inclusion officer, Yvette Brown, has already helped many people in Brunswick. Helping people financially is one of Yvette’s many specialist skills, so, if you are struggling, don’t suffer in silence, please get in touch and ask to make an appointment with Yvette.
