Local Support

Wiltshire Citizens Advice

Wiltshire Citizens Advice is an independent, local charity committed to helping people find a way forward and overcome the problems they face.   They do this by providing free, confidential advice and by campaigning to make society fairer for everyone.

Wiltshire Community Bank Credit Union

In 2011 the Credit Unions of North Wiltshire and Kennet, South Wiltshire and West Wiltshire decided to work in partnership to provide services for everyone in Wiltshire under the umbrella of the Wiltshire Community Bank. Their aim was to broaden their services to help those who were facing these financial difficulties. While the payday lenders seek to profit from the loans they offer, our aim is to help these people gain control of their money by offering a combination of savings and loans.

National Support

Turn2us is a national charity that helps people in financial hardship to gain access to welfare benefits, charitable grants and support services.  You could be missing out on financial help available to you through welfare benefits or grants. Their free and easy-to-use Benefits Calculator and Grants Search tools can help you check what you might be able to claim or apply for.
