Perennial can support you through many of life challenges. If you are worried about paying your billshave health, housing, benefit or employment issues we are happy to help with any issue you may be facing, however complicated. If we are not able to offer the advice you need, we will give you details of other organisations who are able to provide specialist help. 

If you’re finding it difficult to manage financially because of an unexpected event our team can assess what financial support may be available to you and help you understand the options available to you. 

If your income has stopped or reduced we can offer short term support towards daily living costs, including food, heating and clothing. We can also offer help through a period of illness, such as helping with the additional costs of travelling to hospitals and treatment appointments or for families who have experienced a recent bereavement.
