New resource to find locally available advice and cash-first support options in Lewisham
A new ‘Worrying about Money’ leaflet has been designed to support people facing financial difficulties in Lewisham-and those who are supporting them – to quickly see available advice and support options and which agencies are best placed to help.
The aim of the leaflet, co-produced by IFAN – Independent Food Aid Network , Lewisham Local and local stakeholders is to reduce the need for emergency food aid by helping people access any existing financial entitlements and advice on income maximisation as a cash first response to food insecurity. IFAN is collaborating with key stakeholders in various local authorities across the UK to co-develop further leaflets and to share these cash first resources as widely as possible. You can read more about the project and view the leaflets they have developed in other local authority areas here.
Printed copies are currently available for groups to collect from Lewisham Local’s office. If you would like to collect copies for distribution, please email email@example.com to organise collection.
If you’d like to send in any feedback on the leaflet please write to Sabine Goodwin or Ashleigh Comber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
