Financial Empowerment Programme

Support for anyone facing the cost of living crisis

Funded by The Trussell Trust, we’re working in partnership with Liberty Tea Rooms and Christians Against Poverty to support local people facing financial difficulties.

The Financial Empowerment Programme aims to help those who access the Dacorum Foodbank, or may be at risk of needing the service, to manage their situation so they are less likely to need the Foodbank in the future.

The project provides free, in-person support throughout Dacorum to people accessing the Foodbank and similar services like community fridges.

Services include:

  • Tailored budgeting advice and support
  • Checking what benefits you can get
  • Life skills and money management workshops: focusing on how to maintain a tenancy, manage bills, eat healthily for less and improve wellbeing.

More in-depth debt counselling is available on a one-to-one basis for those with significant issues.

If you, or someone you know, needs support from the Financial Empowerment Programme, please contact needhelp@dens.org.uk.
