Posted on: 9 December 2014

If you are struggling with finances, are feeling unable to cope with debt, or have issues with benefits or housing, Money£wise may be able to help.

If you live in Mid Devon and are on a low income, you may be able to access advice and assistance. The aim of Money£wise is to improve the quality of life and financial well-being of people in Mid Devon.

Trevor Foreman, Money£wise adviser for Mid Devon, said: “Since April 2013 we have received nearly 1,000 enquiries from Mid Devon residents. The service is set up so that people in crisis have a one stop shop for accessing help locally.”

The local welfare assistance scheme provides a variety of support including debt and money advice, food parcel referrals, furniture, gas and electricity top ups, and housing information.

Money£wise advisers work closely with other local services in Mid Devon and can make referrals to other support services.

Money£wise is a free, impartial and confidential service available to eligible applicants.
