EMERGENCY HARDSHIP FUND

Heals has launched an Emergency Hardship Fund to help people in Malmesbury and surrounding villages who have little or no income and are facing debt or struggling to pay bills, as a result of the current crisis. We know some people in our area are struggling. Many have lost their income as businesses close. There is some Government help, but some people are slipping through the cracks, while others may have to wait for weeks or months for their cash. Many also have no savings.  Meanwhile, people need to pay essential bills or replace broken household equipment. Our Fund will help them. We don’t want people resorting to payday loans and getting into serious debt. ‎ We’ve seen this happen to people we are now helping. They borrowed hundreds of pounds for important reasons, but now owe thousands.
