Support for anyone facing the cost of living crisis
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.
- 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.
