Maintaining our service

Whilst maintaining our core advice services, we are also innovating ways to improve access to our service for the disadvantaged or hard to reach groups in our community.

Some of the key projects we are working on this year are:

  • 16-24’s Project – increasing awareness and engagement rates of 16-24 year olds living in Elmbridge.
  • Debt Advice – supporting those in need of in-depth debt advice following the Coronavirus pandemic.
  • Complex Needs – supporting people with additional needs, such as mental illness, medical or physical needs to remove some of the barriers to accessing our service.
  • Older Adults – finding ways to help support older adult residents, developing new outreach and referral pathways via GP Surgeries and Home Visits.

Supporting everyone

Any money we fundraise can directly support people in Walton on Thames, Weybridge and Hersham today to receive free, confidential, impartial and independent advice.
