At Stockport Homes we understand that that many of our customers will experience some kind of money difficulties at some point in their lives. This might be due to a change in personal circumstances, such as losing a job or ill health. Or it might be that you are finding it difficult to understand and cope with the changes to the Welfare Benefit system, such as Universal Credit, or the Benefit Cap.
You might be trying to manage on much less money that you were used to and need some help in getting things back on track. Whatever the reason, our Money Advice Team is here to help you work through any financial problems. We offer free, confidential and impartial money and benefit advice. Since our Money Advice Team was introduced, we have helped hundreds of our customers and we’re here to help you.
