Advice

The ‘Caring in a Crisis’ project provides a holistic service to clients helping with multiple issues, including benefits, benefit appeals, homelessness, housing (re housing, poor housing, overcrowding), care packages, aids & adaption referrals to Occupational Health and much more.

The service is offered on an appointment basis. Appointments are offered on a face to face basis at St Albans Community Centre.

We continue to refer where necessary and work closely with local specialist agencies. We can also where necessary accompany you to sign posted services.

The funding from the Big Lottery not only supports the community itself but has also provided for a part time administrator, namely Carol Coleman. Carol is not only an excellent administrator to the project but she is also a very supportive and calming influence when clients come in to St Albans.
