IET Connect can also help with a range of grants for purposes such as essential household needs, replacement furniture and white goods, emergency repairs, mobility, help to maintain or gain independence, care costs (at home and in care homes), as well as respite grants to give carers a break. In some instances we can help individuals and families with short- term day- to-day living costs to help through a period of financial difficulty, perhaps due to loss of income, relationship breakdown, bereavement or redundancy.
“Wow, that is absolutely fantastic!! Thank you very much indeed. I printed out your email and gave it to Thomas saying "See if that put a smile on your Mum's face." She came upstairs with the biggest smile I've seen in a very long time. Thank you so much.”
Anyone can get into debt, it can build up slowly or be due to a sudden loss of income. Over-indebtedness often results from a change in financial circumstances, caused by reduced income or overuse of credit, although relationship breakdown and changes in employment status are also common causes. People who get into debt come from all walks of life and help and advice is available to all who need it irrespective of income.

Once you get in touch with us, we can refer you to independent and confidential debt advice. You will be asked for details about your situation and your finances.
