Shelter - details

We received this email- it might be of help to someone

Shelter’s helpline receives too many calls from people in desperation, and on the brink of losing their home, because bills and notices have been left unopened and problems have piled up.

This January we are encouraging those at risk to seek advice from Shelter and avoid problems spiralling out of control.

We would very much appreciate your help in getting this message out there. You can take these four actions to help people in Bath and North East Somerset to find professional advice:

Post a link to our online advice on your website - www.shelter.org.uk/advice
Encourage your case workers to bookmark our online advice pages - www.shelter.org.uk/advice  so they can refer to them when dealing with housing-related case work

Let your constituents know how to get help from Shelter via our online advice and free telephone helpline number -  www.shelter.org.uk/advice    0808 800 4444

For lots of people, the New Year period brings further challenges and worries.  That’s why we are urging anyone worried about paying their rent or mortgage to make seeking early housing advice their New Year’s resolution.
