STAFF from The Basement Project are taking to the road to run mobile ‘drop-in’ events across the district to help people.

The organisation is working with Support Bromsgrove and NewStarts on the outreach events which have been organised in response to the prolonged impact of the pandemic and forthcoming financial issues.

Changes to Universal Credit (UC), the withdrawal of the Furlough scheme and the dramatic rise in domestic energy bills scheduled to arrive in April are all reasons why people may need the professional help they can now get on their doorsteps.

The first event takes place between 9.30am and 1.30pm tomorrow (Wednesday, February 2) at the Cofton Village Hall Library.

Next up will be Wythall Library next Wednesday, February 9, The Pod in Charford on Wednesday, February 16, Bromsgrove Library on February 23 and Rubery Library on March 9.

All sessions run from 9.30am to 1.30pm.

Jerry Robinson, on behalf of Support Bromsgrove, said: “We are working in conjunction with a number of local organisations to support people in crisis.

“There is no doubt the pandemic has helped bring communities together this partnership creates a strong collective group which is focused on offering the professional advice and support needed by those who are struggling the most.

!We hope local people will take advantage of the drop-in sessions to access guidance on the help they need.”
