CUMBRIA County Council Focus Family team is hosting a Drop-In at Kendal West Children's Centre.

On Thursday January 26, from 1:30pm to 3pm, the team will provide help on questions regarding welfare and benefits support for local families. 

Help available will include:

  • Check your houselhold income and benefits to ensure you are paid the right money at the right time.
  • Carry out a better-off calculation for you to show how your finances can improve when you starting work, increasing your hours when changing jobs
  • Support you with budgeting and debt management advice
  • Support you back into the workplace by accessing funding through your local Jobcentre, removing barries to work such as upfront childcare costs, clothers for interviews, equipment needed for work and initial travel to work costs
  • Signpost to community food hubs or locally accessible grants, funding and services, including support for those effected by domestic abuse, mental health issues.
