BOOST Finance is a partnership service between Wellspring Settlement, Talking Money, CHAS, BRAVE, West of England Works and the Bristol University Law Clinic. We are open by appointment and can help people with:
· Welfare benefits
· Money management
· Legal issues (excluding immigration, family or criminal law) – for immigration advice go to https://www.stpaulsadvice.org.uk/immigration/
· Aspirational planning /community matters.
Accessing the Service
To make an appointment or refer someone to the service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0117 955 6971. We offer in person, telephone and zoom appointments.
When you contact us, please provide the following information:
· Phone number
· Email address
· If translation / an interpreter is needed, please tell us what language
· Brief details of the issue / what support is needed
We are recruiting volunteers to work in the service and are particularly keen for local people or people who speak community languages to join us as our aim is to build a strong resource within the community. All volunteers receive induction, training from Talking Money on delivering basic money advice and are fully supported during their placement, so this would be a great opportunity for anyone who wants to retrain, develop their skills and gain direct work experience in a community support setting.
Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in becoming a volunteer or have any queries.
