If you're finding it difficult to live on your income, or a large expense is looming, it can be a huge relief to share a problem by talking it through with someone who has experience of similar situations and a big help in reaching a realistic, practical solution.

The Chipping Campden community is able to draw on a number of sources for financial assistance. Some are listed below.

In addition the Support Hub has limited funds of its own. Please contact us if you would like to apply for assistance or, indeed, are able to make a donation towards Support Hub funds.
