Financial Help


Are you facing financial difficulties this winter? Help is available. This year has had a huge effect on people’s lives, with the impact of COVID-19 pushing many to financial breaking point. At this time of year, with extra pressure on household budgets, it is important to know that help is available to avoid dangerous loans and long lasting debt.

As part of the government’s Winter Support Grant, Surrey County Council has made extra funding available to the Surrey Crisis Fund. This money is there to act as a winter lifeline for those feeling that there is nowhere to turn when unexpected bills appear or essential household items break down, leaving no money for essential living costs. Please search ‘Surrey Crisis Fund’ online, or phone Surrey Community Helpline on 0300 200 1008 or ask at your local library or Citizens Advice Bureau.
