You’d be surprised what we deal with everyday, so just get in touch. Freephone 0800 056 2424 www.foryoubyyou.org.uk We offer a wide range of services in addition to providing financial support when that’s what you need. When David contacted the Charity he was in the position of having to choose between essential surgery on unpaid leave or staying at work to provide for his family. “What you did for me went above and beyond my expectations – you were like guardian angels.” David, UK Statistics Authority Money Advice Mounting debt is one of the biggest problems in the UK. In addition to financial assistance we provide you with help to reduce debt or budget for the future. By offering this advice with our partners we aim to prevent the continuing cycle of debt. Stress & Anxiety Stress and anxiety can affect anyone. We’re not talking about the times you feel a bit over-stretched; these are the times when you feel you can no longer cope and anxiety or stress start to take over your daily life. We work with Anxiety UK to bring you help in these situations. Caring If you provide unpaid but essential support to an ill or disabled relative, friend or neighbour we might be able to help with a range of services, including covering some of the costs associated with your caring. We also have the Carer’s Passport, a document which can help you better communicate your caring responsibilities to your manager. Depression There are times when we all feel low. This can be linked to a life event and can last for several days or weeks but it usually gets better. In depression, it may not get better and people often need support. We’ve partnered with Depression Alliance to bring you Friends in Need: an online network, aiming to address the loneliness that often comes with depression. Relationships There can be times when you aren’t able to resolve your relationship and family problems on your own. Our partnership with Relate allows you to discuss these problems with a qualified Relate counsellor via a Live Chat service. We also have practical and financial advice on our website to help you through any difficulties. Mental Health To support your emotional wellbeing we offer information, help and advice by drawing on the best material from reputable organisations throughout the UK. Our website includes links to useful information and our partners. Questions?
