Our welfare advice team has helped many residents with their money matters and they are here to support you too. Their expertise spans personal finance, debt and the complexities of the benefit system.
Jamie Ellis, the newest addition to the team, explains why he is passionate about helping to put people in control of their money:
“I have seen many people over the years who are out of control with their finances which puts pressure on health, relationships, and work life, and can lead to more serious problems. It doesn’t have to be that way and it’s my job to ensure that you get the help you need and avoid the pitfalls of fraught finances.”
If you’d like to freshen up your finances in the New Year, read Jamie’s Top-5 Tips for better money management.
If you need extra help with your finances, you can also try your local Citizens Advice, or please get in touch with Jamie or one of our team via our Customer Service Hub.
