Money matters

Financial support from LionHeart


Financial worries affect most of us at some point in our lives. A sudden change in circumstances, especially if it’s unexpected, can have a real negative impact on our finances and leave us struggling to make ends meet.


Trying to reduce the effect that having less cash has on you and your family can be really tough to do on your own. It can also be hard to seek help when it feels as though you should be able to manage the mounting debt. You are not alone.

The people we help are just like you - they have the same worries, the same everyday issues and problems and the same hopes for the future. The difference is that when something unpredictable happened to them, they turned to LionHeart for help.

The best way to avoid getting into financial difficulty is to plan for the future as much as possible, which is why we have teamed up with leading financial planning consultancy Jelf Money At Work to offer a series of Early Career Financial Education Workshops. Aimed at those just starting their careers, the workshops cover key aspects of managing money and planning for the future. Find out more and book your place.

Of course, there are some situations you simply cannot plan for. Some of the people we help have lost their jobs and are struggling to get back into work while others may be facing ill-health or stress, which is affecting their ability to afford living costs.

If you are struggling financially, we can offer:

LionHeart Grants
Our grants are available if you meet certain criteria. For example, if you have less money coming in than going out each month during a time of difficult financial circumstances brought about unexpected events such as ill-health or redundancy. 

Back to Work Scheme
Our Back to Work service offers access to employment specialists, which can include one to one careers coaching and a wealth of online resources.

Counselling

Our counselling service will give you access to a qualified counsellor who will work with you to help you to find ways forward.

Debt Help
Our excellent debt service partners can help you to tackle your debts and make plans for a debt-free future. 

Legal Helpline
Our Legal Helpline gives you access to up to one hour of free advice and information from legal experts. 

"The best thing I ever did..."
Most of the people who contact us tell us that picking up the phone is the best thing they ever did. Don't wait until you're at crisis point: no problem is too big or too small. 
You will be assigned your own named key worker, who will be there to provide support for whatever you need, from start to finish.  Often, just having someone to talk to can make a world of difference.
