Help Through Hardship Crisis - Citizens Advice Wandsworth

The Help Through Hardship Crisis Project accepts referrals from local organisations for Wandsworth residents who are facing hardship or crisis and are in need of advice.

The project focuses in particular on older and isolated people, people with mental health issues, physical disabilities, learning disabilities, care needs and drugs and alcohol issues who are suffering hardship.

The team will address the underlying causes of crisis through advice on issues such as:

  • employment;
  • homelessness;
  • debt; and
  • health problems.

Citizens Advice Wandsworth also runs the Advice First Aid training programme for staff and volunteers from local organisations and groups. Please contact us if you are interested in this training.
