Financial Assistance

Having money troubles? 

Financial problems can affect anyone, anywhere, at any time. With debt building up, paying your rent or even buying food for your family can feel overwhelming.

Money troubles may leave people feeling lonely, embarrassed and isolated. If your financial situation gives you more of an icy shiver than a warm sense of safety, help is at hand. There are many services to help you get back on your feet.

No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS)

Sometimes we all need a little bit of extra help. If you’re on a low income and need a loan for essentials, apply for a no-interest loan today. It’s safer – and cheaper – than pay day loans, pawning your goods or renting appliances.
