The theatrical charities’ response to the housing crisis

We understand the stress that comes with navigating the new mortgage interest rates and the impact it will have on your finances.  Here are some links that will help you ascertain your various options:

We are aware that as a result of interest rate decisions you may also experience problems if you are renting.  The Citizens Advice website can provide more information on how to deal with this.

As much as we are sympathetic, our help will be on a limited basis as that’s all our resources will allow. We will do our best to provide financial assistance for instance, a month’s shortfall, while you explore the alternatives that are listed above. We appreciate these are difficult times and will do our best to help you find a way forward.
