Crisis stricken residents to receive extra support after charity given cash boost

Leamington Editorial 16th Jun, 2018   0

CRISIS-stricken people in Warwick can receive extra support after a charity was given a cash boost.

Citizens Advice Bureau South Warwickshire (CAB) received grants of more than £25,000 from the Charity of Thomas Oken and Nicholas Eyffler and Warwick Town Council.

The money will be used to support those who cannot reach a bureau but are struggling with issues including benefits, debt, money management and health and social care problems.

The charity says it has helped some 70 people over the past two years but believes with the extra funding they can reach around 130 more.




CAB chair of trustees Yvonne Hunter said: “We are so grateful for this support which we know will make such a difference to the lives of those who are disadvantaged, vulnerable or isolated. We will be able to literally knock on the door of people who are in desperate need of help and advice.

“The problems we find behind these closed doors can be heartbreaking, but working with other organisations we are able put together holistic support to meet people’s needs and help them put life back together.”
